Vancouver’s Coastal Jazz and Blues hails Tony Wilson as “unquestionably one of the most original guitar stylists on the Canadian scene.” He has studied with many acclaimed jazz musicians including Oliver Gannon, Dave Holland, John Abercrombie, Kevin Eubanks and Steve Coleman. Tony’s compositions have been played by artists as diverse as the NOW Orchestra, The Hard Rubber Orchestra, Myra Melford, Kokoro Dance, Marilyn Crispel, Francois Houle and Zubot and Dawson.This latest release from Tony Wilson has a lyrical, cinematic feel. The renowned guitarist is featured in a project that is close to his heart and home. Hornby Island is the place, and the players on the CD are well known to him, if not to us. They play together every Friday night at the Thatch Pub, a 15 minute ferry ride from Denman Island. This weekly meeting of musical minds will celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary later this year.
