Will Goble is an in-demand bassist who boasts a full, dark sound, a strong desire to swing, and an unshakable commitment to support his fellow musicians in any ensemble. He has appeared as a sideman with Grammy award-winning pianist Marcus Roberts and with numerous other notable artists, including Vincent Gardner, Marcus Printup, and Jason Marsalis. He currently performs frequently with his own trio as well as the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet.
Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson
For last night’s special performance, he was joined by the accomplished saxophonist Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson, himself a seasoned member of the Wynton Marsalis Septet and former longtime member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. As his nickname suggests, Warmdaddy’s sax playing has a rich and welcoming tone. Anderson was coupled with the equally warm and swinging styles of the Will Goble Trio featuring Austin Johnson on piano and David Potter on drums.
