Michael Wolff survived a harrowing health scare. The experience led him to seek the creation of beauty.
The jazz pianist/composer says that in 2013 he was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma that was treatable but not curable. “At that point, they weren’t even going to treat me,” he remembers, “because I wasn’t sick, I just had a few little symptoms. The doctors told me, ‘We’re going to wait until you get sick. We don’t treat this ahead of time. It doesn’t pay.’”
