Fiona's Comments

For slightly inebriated prairie voices, think Dawn Thomson, Norah Jones, and the ilk. 'Fall in a hole and die quietly bejesus' music. Good times. #bourbonandbereavement

About the Album

Bringers is a track from drummer/composer Matt Wilson's recording Honey and Salt, a tribute to poet Carl Sandburg. The album features readings by a stellar list of jazz greats whose spoken voices are as expressive and eloquent as their better-known instrumental voices, including Christian McBride, John Scofield, Carla Bley, Bill Frisell, Joe Lovano, Jack Black and Rufus Reid. Wilson sets these recitations in an eclectic variety of settings for the ensemble that he's formed expressly to pay homage to Sandburg: guitarist/vocalist Dawn Thomson, cornetist Ron Miles, multi-reedist Jeff Lederer, and bassist Martin Wind, along with Wilson's familiarly jubilant and spirited drumming.
