    ”Wilson hails from the Wes Montgomery/Grant Green/George Benson tradition of mainstream guitar with R&B and gospel inflections.” — Jazziz
    Grant Green meets Wes Montgomery meets George Benson. Not quite, but that gives some idea of what you’ll hear from composer/guitarist Dan Wilson. Highly endorsed by none other than Pat Metheny, Wilson’s reputation as a first-rate jazz guitarist has permeated the walls of the elite in the upper echelon of jazz guitar. This Grammy-nominated artist has already cemented his place as a world-class player, and his recent exploits show that he has no plans of slowing down. His career has taken him on an exploratory journey into foundations laid down by the guitar/organ tradition. Dan Wilson recorded and toured with jazz great Joey DeFrancesco, which later led him to joining and touring with bassist Christian McBride and his band, Tip City. McBride then served as producer on Wilson’s 2021 album, Vessels of Wood and Earth, which brings a wide palette of originals and inventive interpretations inspired by Motown, gospel, and jazz traditions.

    “The emotionally complex album that came out of that session owes much to the single-minded focus of the three players as they moved fluently through Milne’s dynamic compositions.” – Downbeat Magazine
    For 30 years, award-winning pianist/composer Andy Milne has collaborated with dancers, visual artists, poets and musicians spanning jazz, classical, pop, folk, and world music. With his new group Unison, Milne explores the intimacy of the piano trio. The synchronistic relationship Milne has enjoyed with bassist John Hébert since 2010 is matchlessly rounded out with Grammy award-winning drummer Clarence Penn, who represents complimentary threads within the fabric of Milne’s piano trio philosophy – the intersection of texture and groove. Their 2020 debut recording, The Remission, won them a 2021 Juno award for “Jazz Album of the Year: Group.”
