The best kept secret in music


"Andy Woodson Band"

"Perhaps the majority of jazz bass players spend their careers as hired guns, more often known as part of a rhythm section than as auteurs. Some, such as Woodson, are the key musical focus of their own and others' groups.
The Columbus musician, whose style is both modern and rooted in tradition, has proved his value with two terrific self-produced albums.
The new Catalpa not only utilizes the considerable talents of saxophonist Michael Cox, guitarist Paul Brown, fiddler Christian Howes, drummer Tony McClung, pianist Erik Augis and other Columbus luminaries, but molds the combination into something fresh and personal."
- The Columbus Dispatch

"Andy Wodson Band - Live"

" the time the sun dropped into the trees Friday, the Jazz Tent was finally dropping into its own groove with Andy Woodson's band, with guest Dan Kelly in from New York... The band burned through tunes from Woodson's flashy new CD, Catalpa. The closer- a takeoff on Footprints called Walk, featuring Kelly slapping the keyboard with the flats of his hands-was just short of berserk. The roar from the crowd didn't spell boredom."
- Lee Brown, The Other Paper


Scioto (1997) and Catalpa (2002), both available at and on the iTunes store.


Feeling a bit camera shy


This group features phenomenal musicality and performance skills by members of the Andy Woodson Band with saxophonist Michael Cox out front, playing stylistically diverse and colorful originals, standards and arrangements of some favorite tunes by Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Jaco Pastorius, Bob Dylan, Thad Jones and others, with a healthy dose of spirited, virtuostic improvisation thrown in.
