Warren Wolf is best known as a vibraphonist — notably, on his 2011 self-titled album, and as the malletman in Christian McBride's Inside Straight band. Plenty of musicians, especially in his native Baltimore, know him also as a drummer or pianist; he's toured and recorded in both capacities. After studying, then teaching at Berklee College of Music in Boston, he moved back home, where he met several of the musicians joining him on stage here.

On Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011, The Checkout: Live series paired Warren Wolf's WOLFPAC with guitarist Lage Lund's band in a double bill, in performance at 92Y Tribeca. The concert was broadcast on air via WBGO and in an online video webcast at this page on NPR Music, with a live online chat.
