April 13, 2012

Steve Wilson has attained ubiquitous status in the studio and on the stage with the greatest names in jazz, as well as critical acclaim as a bandleader in his own right. A musician’s musician, Wilson has brought his distinctive sound to more than 100 recordings led by such celebrated and wide-ranging artists as Chick Corea, George Duke, Michael Brecker, Dave Holland, Dianne Reeves, Bill Bruford, Gerald Wilson, Maria Schneider, Joe Henderson, Charlie Byrd, Billy Childs, Karrin Allyson, Don Byron, Bill Stewart, James Williams, and Mulgrew Miller among many others. Wilson has seven recordings under his own name, leading and collaborating with such stellar musicians as Lewis Nash, Carl Allen, Steve Nelson, Cyrus Chestnut, Greg Hutchinson, Dennis Irwin, James Genus, Larry Grenadier, Ray Drummond, Ben Riley, and Nicholas Payton.
The Steve Wilson Super Band is a reflection of Steve Wilson’s multifaceted artistry and versatility. Pianist Patrice Rushen (hit recording artist, composer, arranger, producer, Grammy and Emmy Awards musical director, film and television scores), bassist James Genus (w/Herbie Hancock, Saturday Night Live, Bob James, Whitney Houston), and drummer Billy Kilson (w/George Duke, Chris Botti, Michael Franks, Dianne Reeves) are three of the most accomplished and creative talents in music today. Vocalist Carla Cook will join them for two nights at Jazz Standard. (Kenny Davis will replace James Genus on April 14.) Wilson says, “These are artists of the highest caliber, and with their collective resumes this is indeed a real “super band”.
