THE SEXY SULTRY VOICE OF KALIL WILSON

With his swinging Ensemble performing Jazz for Lovers: The Most Romantic Jazz Love Songs of all Time!

In less than a decade, vocalist Kalil Wilson has become one of the most potent and promising vocalists in a generation. Gifted with a  powerful yet nuanced voice and armed with a technical  versatility that positions him comfortably in jazz, R&B, pop, and classical, Wilson has earned high marks from the music press and has captivated audiences from Barcelona to Berkeley with performances that defy easy categorization. His bright re-imaginings of jazz standards and originals are well-informed by the rich history of great jazz singing while melding seamlessly with his heartfelt, eclectic stylings.

An Oakland native, Wilson’s Kalil’s early life was filled with music. He is the son of well-known Nigerian bassist/bandleader Babá Ken Okulolo and an American mom whose huge record collection of vintage jazz, African, R&B, and salsa helped trigger Kalil’s musical awakening.  He describes a later encounter with an aria from Puccini that left him shaken and moved. “It was just this incredibly visceral experience, turning your body into this sound cannon,” he recalls.
