Saxophone/woodwind and percussion trio founded in 2020 by award-winning musicians J Brooks Marcus (J Why), Lois Hicks-Wozniak and Brad Hubbard, Hot Wrk Ensemble is committed to creating community through diverse, genre-eclectic “chamber grooves” that include everything from Bossa Nova, Son Jalisciense, Scarlatti, contemporary classical and collaborative improvisation.
