The Anthony Wilson Trio – Our Gang

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Most of Anthony Wilson’s recordings to date tend to put the focus on his writing, so this workout by the guitarist in a trio is a welcome change of pace. Wilson has a melodic and boppish style with an attractive tone. He interacts with two fellow citizens of Los Angeles: organist Joe Bagg and drummer Mark Feber. Wilson contributes three originals and also plays songs by Bagg, Kenny Burrell, the Beatles, Frank Loesser, and Duke Ellington (“Prelude to a Kiss”). Overall this is a fine straight-ahead jazz date by an underrated but talented guitarist.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
