Old pals Scott Wendholt and Stu MacAskie met in college and moved to New York City together many moons ago. Both musicians thrived and grew into substantial careers, Wendholt has become an NYC jazz mainstay. Wendholt, born and raised in Denver, and MacAskie, a Denver resident for 6 years, meet again on the Dazzle stage- a night full of meaning for these old friends and sure to be filled with the joy of jazz music. Mr. Wendholt is a much-in-demand artist and has found himself in a variety of settings. He has recorded and/or worked extensively with artists including Kenny Garrett, Cyrus Chestnut, Christian McBride, Don Braden, and Bruce Barth. He has been recorded on more than 100 CDs. His list of credits includes The Carnegie Hall Big Band (led by Jon Faddis), Maria Schneider’s Big Band, the Bob Mintzer Big Band, and Toshiko Akiyoshi’s big band. He currently has the honor of being included in the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra (formerly Thad Jones/Mel Lewis) where he has been a featured soloist for more than 20 years. Mr. MacAskie has performed with a wide range of jazz and pop artists including Frank Morgan, Bill Watrous, The New York Voices, Antonio Hart, and Bobby Shew.
