‘Wade In The Water’ is a classic among jubilee songs that, through time, has come to include a lot of interesting jazz elements that make it a joy to play. It also has a lot of significance for people of African descent around the world, so I am honoured whenever I have the chance to perform it.
This clip was part of the Sax Interpretations: Ladies Edition online concert by Courtney Fadlin. I hope the swing feel of the song enlivens your day and weekend.
Best wishes for Easter!
