Stephen Wood

Stephen Wood is a composer and performer working out of Atlanta, Georgia and Columbus, Ohio. Stephen's main compositional vehicle is The Stephen Wood Ensemble, through which he just released its debut CD, Inaudible

Inaudible is an impressive, full-length record featuring an orchestrated nonet masterfully improvising over Stephen Wood's evocative compositions.

Wood's strengths lie in his versatility, attention to nuance, and thorough understanding of many styles and genres--from the classical to contemporary. Committed to expanding traditional forms, Wood continues to push the relationship between groove and soundscape in his compositions. His creative voice reveals a detailed attention to harmony and rhythm, and a great passion for the expressive power of sound.

Before relocating to Atlanta in 2007, Stephen led the band Postal in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to playing around the Midwest region, Stephen released the Postal CD, Theory of Chaconne, to critical acclaim. Currently, The Stephen Wood Ensemble operates with two satellite ensembles, a veteran group of Columbus, Ohio's nationally, and a newly formed group of Atlanta, Georgia's young lions.

Stephen is developing his fan base in the Southeast and Midwest by booking touring dates between Ohio and Georgia.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
