Guitarist Dan Wilson

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

Dan burst into the national 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, got to experience McBride as a producer.
