Matt Wilson is a phenomenal drummer who has played with, and been praised by, a seemingly endless list of contemporary jazz greats. In addition to his instrumental skills, he receives constant praise as a bandleader and a creative force who experiments and pushes both sidemen and genre boundaries alike, while remaining widely accessible in every context. Funnily enough, the simple – albeit far too rare – element that elevates Wilson’s performances (and you’d be hard pressed to find a concert or record review that doesn’t mention this) is his obvious and unadulterated joy. Wilson’s sense of humor, tireless smile, and spirited energy acts as the catalyst to everyone onstage and off feeling good and having FUN. Please enjoy tonight’s rebroadcast of Matt Wilson’s Big Happy Family, originally performed at Dizzy’s Club on October 16, 2016.
