Paul WinterThe extraordinary saxophonist, composer, and bandleader Paul Winter has a body of work that chronicles his wide-ranging experiences in the musical traditions and natural environments of our planet and celebrates the cultures and creatures of the whole earth. His colleagues include some of the world’s finest jazz, world, and classical musicians, along with notable voices from the great symphony of wildlife.

From the early days of his college jazz sextet, which toured 23 countries of Latin America for the State Department and performed the first-ever jazz concert at the White House for the Kennedys in 1962, to his now venerable ensemble, the Paul Winter Consort, concert tours and recording expeditions have taken him to 52 countries and to wilderness areas on six continents, where he has traveled on rafts, dog sleds, mules, kayaks, tug-boats and Land Rovers. He has recorded over 50 albums, of which seven have been honored with Grammy® Awards.

Paul Winter and his group, the Paul Winter Consort, have dedicated their music to the cause of environmental advocacy for more than 40 years. The Consort have performed throughout the world, including New York’s iconic Carnegie Hall and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. One of the earliest exponents of world music, the group developed a unique genre of “Earth Music” (sometimes described as ecological or environmental jazz), interweaving classical, jazz, and world music elements with voices from the world of nature.
