Vessels Of Wood And Earth


On 'Vessels of Wood and Earth', guitarist/composer Dan Wilson's debut album for legendary bassist/ composer Christian McBride's Brother Mister label, the young player casts a groove so strong that even when soloing he propels the music irresistibly forward.

Dan burst into the spotlight when Joey DeFrancesco, one of the all-time greatest jazz organists, invited him to a coveted spot in his trio. Dan went on to tour with McBride's trio, Tip City, and on 'Vessels of Wood and Earth', Dan got to experience McBride as a producer (he also plays bass on two tracks).

Through 11 joyfully dynamic compositions ranging from takes on classic songs from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Ted Daffan mixed with a nod to the spiritual master John Coltrane as well as five original compositions, Wilson builds a foundation rooted as much in tradition as it is in moving the music irresistibly forward into the modern world.

Joined by pianist Christian Sands, bassist Marco Panascia, drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts and guest vocalist Joy Brown, the virtuosic guitarist's broad musical roots inspired by Motown, gospel and jazz tradition result in a remarkable feel for arrangements. Wilson's musical explorations allow the band to elevate each passage, aided by his fluid and melodic expression.
