Today, Skip continues to explore and expand the jazz canon, captivating audiences with every performance.

Evan Gregor, a renowned bassist from New York City will be backing Skip Wilkins . Evan's mastery of both acoustic and electric bass  made him a sought-after sideman by jazz legends such as Gary Burton, Dave Liebman, and Phil Woods.
