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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
