Welcome to the JAZZIZ Podcast. This is our new series of podcast conversations, hosted by JAZZIZ Online Editor Matt Micucci and featuring some of the best artists of today’s jazz and creative music scene. Many of these artists are part of JAZZIZ Vinyl Club, our series of limited-edition color vinyl albums curated by the JAZZIZ Editors, featuring some of the most exciting jazz artists from yesterday and today that we cover in the print version of JAZZIZ, our website and these podcasts.
Join us on this soulful and inspiring episode of the JAZZIZ Podcast, as we sit down with the exceptionally talented guitarist Dan Wilson. Throughout his musical journey, Wilson has remained rooted in the love and support of his family and the guiding light of the gospel church that ignited his passion for music.
In his latest album, Things Eternal, he takes us on a heartfelt ride, drawing from the wisdom of his mentors, like Joey DeFrancesco and Christian McBride, and reflecting on life’s losses and the profound impact they leave on us. We’ll delve into the rich sources of inspiration that have shaped Wilson’s artistry, from the nurturing bonds of family to the enduring influence of jazz legends.
