“His tone is full-bodied and unadorned by modernistic effects, his phrasing fluid. He can turn on the after-burners, too…” — Jazziz Magazine
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.
Dan Wilson‘s broad musical roots in Motown, gospel and jazz tradition shine through in this debut release with Mack Avenue and Brother Mister Productions. Widely celebrated by Stereogum, Jazziz, and beyond, ‘Vessels of Wood and Earth’ features Christian Sands, Marco Panascia, Jeff “Tain” Watts and Joy Brown.
