about

GRAMMY-nominated saxophonist and co-leader of Kneebody, Ben Wendel releases his studio album adaptation of the acclaimed YouTube video series The Seasons. Inspired by Tchaikovsky’s compositions, each track is dedicated to a specific month and artist who has shaped Wendel's creative vision. The Seasons is not only a representation of the passage of time but a statement on how technology has changed the way artists communicate and share art.
