Ed at Suncoast

Hi. I'm Ed Wise and I'm a musician. I've been playing jazz professionally on the string bass for over 40 years. I live in America's premier city for live music and the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans.  My musical home base is Houston's Restaurant on St. Charles Avenue, where I play bass regularly with David Hansen's Garden District Trio.  The trio has just released its first MP3 download album and can be purchased and downloaded here

Also a musical arranger, I lead a band called Ed Wise and his New Orleans Jazz Band, playing my own arrangements of vintage jazz classics. 

Be sure to see our promotional video (courtesy of JazzBridge).  And you can see and hear the band on YouTube playing the following tunes (just click on ‘em below!):

Mahogany Hall Stomp

Milneburg Joys

When The Saints Go Marching In

I also perform at jazz festivals across the globe with the popular Midiri Brothers Band and around the east coast with legendary guitarist and raconteur Marty Grosz

I've had the good fortune to work with some of the greatest musicians and entertainers in the world.  If you'd like to learn more about my career, please have a look at my bio page.  If you'd like to learn what other people and the media have to say about me, please visit my "Audience & Press Comments" page.
