WHO IS ANTHONY WILSON?
Read the following excerpts from AnthonyWilson.com. Visit the website to learn more.
Born in Los Angeles in 1968, guitarist and composer Anthony Wilson is known for a body of work that moves fluidly across genres.
The son of legendary jazz trumpeter and bandleader Gerald Wilson, his musical lineage has deeply influenced his creative trajectory, compositional choices, instrumental groupings, and the wide-ranging twelve album discography that blooms out of them.
An inventive soloist and sensitive accompanist, he has been a core member of Diana Kralls quartet since 2001, after joining her for a series of concerts in Paris at the Olympia Theater, which became the Grammy award winning recording and concert film Live in Paris (2002).
Over the past two decades, Wilson has joined a diverse roster of jazz masters on their recordings and performances, including Ron Carter, Mose Allison, Bobby Hutcherson, Madeleine Peyroux, Joe Sample, Al Jarreau, and Harold Land. And while his footing is firmly rooted in the jazz idiom, Wilson pivots with ease into other genres, having contributed his instrumental texture and improvisational authority to albums by pop music legends Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, Aaron Neville, and Barbra Streisand.
Wilson was awarded the Thelonious Monk Institute International Composers Award in 1995. He has also received commissions from Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, the International Association of Jazz Education, and the Henry Mancini Institute. In 2018, he was selected as a MacDowell Colony fellow.
Wilson's latest album and photobook "Songs and Photographs" (2018) was made in creative collaboration with artbook publisher Little Steidl Anthony Wilson brings together a collection of his songs and 35mm photographs that opens a new chapter in his broadening quest for personal and musical authenticity.
Anthony's developing project involves a collection of his 35mm photographs taken in the Mississippi Delta coupled with new Delta Songs musical compositions. We will hear more about this, no doubt!
WHO IS MATT ROLLINGS?
Matt is a Multiplatinum GRAMMY Award-winning producer, pianist and songwriter.
Read the following excerpts from MattRollings.com. Visit the website to learn more.
On stage playing piano, behind the board producing, or alongside an artist writing songs, Matt Rollings staunchly subscribes to a philosophy that powers all aspects of his creativity and has led him to become a multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, pianist, and songwriter.
The sought-after piano virtuosos performance discography spans thousands of recordings. These range from Eric Clapton, Lyle Lovett, Billy Joel, Johnny Cash, and Queen to Metallica, The Dixie Chicks, Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow, and more.
In many ways, his instrument speaks for him and has done so since he discovered it during childhood. As an instrument, piano is the whole world to me, he explains. The landscape is all laid out. The piano covers so much musical ground. It can at once be an orchestra, a boogie-woogie band, or the smallest of lullabies. Its everything.
2019 will bring Matts highly-anticipated solo album MOSAIC, which will showcase his mastery not only as a pianist and arranger, but also as a producer with collaborators Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, John Hiatt, and more.
Most recently, Matt won a 2019 Grammy for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals for "It Was A Very Good Year" - Matt Rollings & Kristin Wilkinson, arrangers (Willie Nelson)
He won a 2019 Grammy as co-producer for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, "My Way" by Willie Nelson.
Matt joins Anthony Wilson in a Home Concert on Friday, May 10th at the Clarksdale White House.
