Steve's New Recording Coming March 24, 2015
There's BIG news on the recording front for Steve! His second Kickstarter campaign was a success, 214 people pledged a total of $11,938. Because of this generous support, Steve can now take the next steps towards releasing the CD, entitled Steve Wilson & Wilsonian's Grain Live in New York: The Vanguard Sessions. It will be released on March 24, 2015 by Random Act Records.
There are seven tracks on the recording: Well You Needn't (Thelonious Monk), Spot It You Got It (Orrin Evans), Chrysalis (Wilson), Perry Street (Wilson), Spheresophically (Wilson), If I Were A Wind of Spring (Migiwa Miyajima), and Patterns (Joe Chambers).
Steve's concept for this recording was to capture that warm, wonderful sound at the legendary Village Vanguard, so the listener at home can feel the energy, the excitement and clarity you get during a live performance there. The only thing better is you can sit in your favorite, most comfortable chair as you listen! The tracks are presented just as he would do for a live set.
More information soon on where to purchase your copy.
