Few musicians embody the spontaneous energy of jazz like Matt Wilson. The New York-based drummer combines buoyant zeal, idiosyncratic style, infectious humor, joyous swing, and an indomitable spirit of surprise. Together, with his universally recognized personal warmth, these qualities have made Wilson one of the most in-demand players and educators on the modern jazz scene, both beloved and respected by his peers, elders and students. Not bad for a mischievous Midwestern boy from Knoxville, Illinois.
Whether anchoring an all-star group at the White House, juggling tricky rhythmic swerves with his own quartets, exploring the poetry of Carl Sandburg or, as with this concert date, celebrating the holidays with his Christmas Tree-O, Wilson approaches music as a man on a mission: fostering a lively and passionate connection between music and people.
