The Warmdaddy-Rapp Quartet is led by two dynamic players, saxophonist, Wess ‘Warmdaddy’ Anderson and trumpeter Mark Rapp. Wess Anderson was a member of the Wynton Marsalis Septet for more than 10 years and toured the world as a long time member of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. In addition to his vast professional performance experience, he served on the faculty of the Juilliard Institute for Jazz Studies.
Trumpeter, composer, and recording artist Mark Rapp’s 2009 debut release album earned him a spot on the ‘Top 25 Emerging Trumpeters’ list in Downbeat Magazine. Earlier this year, Mark was acknowledged by the State House of Representatives naming him the Jazz Ambassador of Columbia and the State of South Carolina.
After a couple tours in New Orleans and four sold out shows at the famous Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Warmdaddy-Rapp Quartet recorded their first release entitled ‘Natural History’. Their live shows are deep in swing, boogaloos, grooves and adventure. Not afraid to stretch out, they even employ the sounds of the didgeridoo. The Warmdaddy-Rapp Quartet is a refreshingly melodic, grooving, swinging band.
Wess ‘Warmdaddy’ Anderson – Saxophone
