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 music and the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans. My musical home base is Houston's Restaurant on St. Charles Avenue, where I play bass 7 night a week 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.
And, recently, the band has added a repertoire of orchestral arrangements, which we debuted on August 20 with the Ocean City Pops orchestra in Ocean City, New Jersey.
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.
