Vintage guitarist and raconteur Marty Grosz is a legend of the jazz world. He is today's foremost jazz rhythm guitarist and chord soloist. His virtuosity on the guitar, his sometimes soulful, sometimes-humorous vocals and his dry-wit storytelling make for a memorable and entertaining program. Born in Germany, Marty was brought to America at the age of three and grew up on Long Island. He says he plays acoustic guitar “because amplification makes it too easy.” The Hot Winds, led by Marty on guitar, include three of the east coast's top jazz performers, cornetist Dan Tobias, reedman Scott Robinson and string bassist Ed Wise. The last time Marty Grosz and the Hot Winds played for TSJS was March 2009. Many left that concert with smiles on their faces and requests that we bring them back soon. It’s taken almost four years, so don’t miss them!

Dan Tobias has become a much sought-after cornetist in the Delaware Valley, and also nationally. He can be heard performing with the Midiri Brothers, Jerry Rife's Rhythm Kings, Vince Giordano's Nighthawks, and Ed Wise and his New Orleans Jazz Band. His phrasing is lyrical, his tone fat and relaxed.

Marty says, "Scott Robinson, owns and performs upon every single reed instrument known to mankind, from the tiny sopranino clarinet to the massive contra-bass saxophone.  He has outwrestled the mighty double-reed sarrusophone which produces tones so deep that it is forbidden by law to play it within a quarter mile of a suspension bridge."

Ed Wise has been on the music faculty at Loyola University, New Orleans, and currently serves as musical director for the University of Pennsylvania's jazz ensemble. Moving to Philadelphia from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, he is a member of the Tri-State Jazz Society board of directors and has appeared at numerous jazz festivals around the globe. He returns to New Orleans every spring to perform at the French Quarter Festival and JazzFest.
