Critically acclaimed by JazzTimes with such praise as ‘…gruff, streetwise tenor…passionate blowing…catchy hooks and warm moods…’, jazz saxophonist Dave Wilson has arrived. Here, he puts together an acclaimed rhythm section to form something special – this quartet has got something to say.
Along with a rich history and track record of becoming an incredible ‘wind instrument’ player, DAVE WILSON has studied with Joe Lovano and Bill Barron (among others), worked with both Dave Stahl’s Big Band and Orchestra, and here this veteran saxophonist has assembled a world-class quartet.
‘Wilson (has) a dynamic quality that pushes his quartet’s performance beyond ordinary. He’s having fun, and that means his audience can enjoy the spirit equally…sincere emotion…’
‘Wilson…is a threat throughout the woodwind family…a fluid player who gets around the horn – mostly tenor and soprano – and blends in wherever he lands…’
‘Snappy modern jazz that you don’t have to be a hard core hipster to enjoy. With a swinging, after hours feel, this is a cooking date fueled by local luminaries that are having a great time. It sounds like you will too. Check it out.’
-MIDWEST RECORD, CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher
