"Wilson, on tenor and soprano saxophones, puts a strong foot forward, backed by a tight and raring-to-go rhythm section...the saxophonist brandishes his big tone and easily tumbling facility...a varied and mostly powerful impact."

“A sax bad boy that knows his stuff...Count on this journey through the past to hit all the right notes at every turn.


“Wilson and his teammates are clearly invested in the enterprise, musically and emotionally...there is enticing jazz to be uncorked here and handsome solos.”


My latest CD Stretching Supreme is a homage to saxophonist John Coltrane. The 7 song disc is a live recording taped at Philadelphia’s own Chris’ Jazz club that includes 5 John Coltrane compositions, the three song suite “Love Supreme”, “Dear Lord”, “Naima”, my original “On the Prairie” and the Mancini classic “Days Of Wine and Roses”. There were no edits or overdubs, and the recording represents the full, exciting sound and impressive improvisatory chops of the quartet.
