Wendy Luck

Wendy Luck, internationally recognized flutist, vocalist, composer, and multimedia artist has concertized in the United States, Italy, France, Poland, Germany, Budapest, Morocco, Portugal, Greece, Egypt, Israel, and Mexico. Residing in New York City, her array of artistic venues ranges from orchestral/chamber performances at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and Merkin Hall, to Big Band music as lead vocalist/flutist at the Rainbow Room in New York City, to jazz and avant-garde at the Knitting Factory, Roulette, and The Kitchen, to the comedy club circuit, as comedienne with “The Outcasts,” to recording her own compositions in Egypt inside the Great Pyramid and in the temples along the Nile. These CDs are entitled The Ancient Key and The Ancient Journey. In performance, she utilizes the uniquely edited video footage taken during her experience in Egypt. This original performance piece integrates her playing live with the footage, creating a multidimensional musical experience. She has been asked by the 

Egyptian Embassy to become a “Music Ambassador of Peace,” performing her music at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. A third CD, See You in Rio, which was recorded in Brazil with the notable rhythm section (Nelson Faria, Ney Conceiçao, Kiko Frietas) of legendary composer and singer João Bosco, features Brazilian jazz. A fourth CD, Orchids and Moonbeams, a jazz and classical alchemy, features her lyrics, voice and flute playing, with the music of Michael Kraft. Her originally conceived, written, and performed one-woman show entitled Aquatic Information, a multimedia presentation consisting of her music compositions, video backdrops, live video projection, animation, characters, and staging, was selected for presentation in J-Fest and the Venus Theater Festival for Women Playwrights Competition in New York City. Recent guest appearances include performances with Robert Mwamba at the Blue Note, Eamonn McCrystal, in his Emmy award winning PBS special in Ireland, the Cabo Jazz Festival, and as featured flutist for installationist Gabriele Juvan’s Nest. In Wendy’s major movie debut of Adriana Trigiani’s new movie, Big Stone Gap, being released in Fall 2015 (with Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson, Jenna Elfmann, Whoopie Goldberg), she plays flute, sings, 

fiddles, and acts. Luck has worked and recorded with such jazz and avant-garde artists as Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Oliver Lake, Marion Brown, Ed Blackwell, Dave Holland, Karl Berger, Wallace Roney, Anthony Braxton, Bob Moses, Jack DeJohnette, Sam Rivers, Tyrone Brown, Joe Lovano, Rodolfo Alchourron, and Cyro Baptista, Bucky Pizzarelli, Ed Laub, Dinu Ghezzo, Jerome Kitzke, Carmen Moore. Luck has won numerous awards for her compositions and can be found in Scott Yanow’s book, The Jazz Singers: The Ultimate Guide. Wendy Luck received her BFA with Honors in Flute Performance from the University of Wisconsin, MA in Composition, Performance, and Multimedia from NYU’s Gallatin School, and PhD in Music Composition and Performance from NYU. Continual research in music and healing inspired her masters thesis entitled The Therapeutic and Healing Effects of Music and Sound. Her doctoral dissertation entitled Flute, Voice, Muse, and Multimedia: Creating a Work of Performance Art is available through UMI Publishing.
