“Channeling the warm, soulful vibes of Wes Montgomery and George Benson” (DownBeat), guitarist and 2022 LetterOne RISING STARS Jazz Award winner Dan Wilson makes his SFJAZZ debut with music from his new all-star album Vessels of Wood and Earth.

The Akron, Ohio native began making waves on the national scene through his work with iconic organist Joey DeFrancesco, and came to the attention of Christian McBride when the bass giant was Artist in Residence at Cleveland’s Tri-C Jazz Festival and saw the dazzling young guitarist, hiring him to tour with his Tip City trio.

Wilson has shared the stage with Les McCann, Russell Malone, René Marie, and David Sanborn, and released three albums as a leader including 2021’s Vessels of Wood and Earth, produced by McBride and released on the bassist’s Brother Mister Productions label. The album, named for a bible verse highlighting the importance of foundational elements over superficiality, features a combination of advanced original material and works by Coltrane, Pat Metheny, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye, backed by an incredible lineup of musicians including pianist Christian Sands, bassists McBride and Marco Panascia, vocalist Joy Brown, and legendary drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts.
