Kurt Stockdale is a saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and educator, recently arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area. After studying classical music with great devotion into his twenties, Kurt fell in love with improvised music, and it became his life’s focus. The call of the Big Apple music scene lead him to twelve years living in New York, where he performed and recorded with Wycliffe Gordon, Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock and many others while also completing his post-graduate studies at The Juilliard School on full scholarship and stipend.
