The Dave Wilson Quartet: My Time

Sign in to view read count
The Dave Wilson Quartet: My Time Dave Wilson's debut album, Through The Time (2002), presented him as a post-Coltrane soprano and tenor saxophonist with a penchant for melody. On My Time, recorded with a Pennsylvania group, he retains bassisst Steve Meashey, adding pianist Matt Hockmiller and drummer Tony Deangelis.

Wilson opens the album with an unusual choice, Alec Wilder's "Moon and Sand," which he plays as a ballad on both soprano and tenor sax. The remaining ten selections include five originals, plus "Just Friends," Kenny Wheeler's "Smatter," Bill Evans' "Time Remembered" and an original arrangement of "Summertime." Wilson offers two versions of the Gershwin classic: first, a six-minute take on the third track, then the twelve-minute closer, with plenty of room to display his tenor sax technique.

Wilson does show a keen sense of melody, as well as the ability to turn the heat a notch up on the up-tempo tracks. His ballad "Song for Lisa," performed on soprano sax, is attractive. Pianist Matt Hochmiller provides several punchy solo statements, while Meashey and Deangelis supply a simmering cushion for the quartet.
