Garrett Wingfield is a Miami-based saxophonist, clarinetist, pianist, arranger, composer, and general person who loves working on a million different things. As a saxophonist, Wingfield has performed with musicians all across the spectrum of the jazz world. He was a member of the GRAMMY nominated One O’Clock Lab Band for two years, and has performed alongside Bobby McFerrin, Wycliffe Gordon, and James Morrison. In 2016 he performed with the NDR Bigband at the Elbjazz Festival in Hamburg, Germany. In 2019, he performed multiple headlining concerts with the Anna Jalkéus Group in Nanjing, China.
Recently, he has been active as a performer in a broad variety of musical situations. These include a two month residency as an ensemble member of the “Kunsthalle for Music” exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, many tours across the US with Louis Prima, Jr., and a tour of the US with Conner Eisenmenger’s Think Tank. Currently, Garrett lives in South Miami and is building a full time teaching and arranging studio both virtually and locally. He lives on a property with five chihuahuas but wishes he lived on a property with five cats instead.
Garrett has a BM in Music Composition from Texas Christian University and an MM in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas. At both schools, I also studied saxophone/woodwind performance.
