Jazz Guitarist Dan Wilson has been on Jazz Guitar Life’s radar for more than a few years now and it’s been a joy to see and hear him develop, both professionally and musically. Of course, he has had “help” over the years with players like Joey DeFrancesco and Christian McBride guiding him along the way, along with a slew of others – directly or indirectly – engaging and inspiring his musical spirit in a variety of euphonious directions.
All that to say, Mr. Wilson has a new album dropping on May 19, 2023 and if the first single is any indication, it’s gonna be a damn sweet listen! 🙂
Things Eternal is the title and here’s what his record label has to say about this soon-to-be new release:
The first song on guitarist/composer Dan Wilson’s Things Eternal opens with a recorded voicemail from the late organist, personal mentor and dear friend Joey DeFrancesco, serving as a tribute, guiding light and mission statement. Throughout a curated selection of 12 songs, Wilson gathers hope and inspiration from ancestral wisdom, dedicated to the enduring quality of the human spirit. From unique takes on classics from The Beatles, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Michael Brecker, Freddie Hubbard and McCoy Tyner to original compositions, Wilson has crafted an impeccable statement for the world to take notice.Mack Avenue – source
I am really looking forward to checking out this album – review will follow – and I am glad that Dan took some time away “…from those woods” to “git ‘er done!” 🙂
