Few musicians embody the spontaneous energy of jazz quite like Matt Wilson. The New York-based drummer combines buoyant zeal, idiosyncratic style, infectious humor, joyous swing, and an indomitable spirit of surprise, making him one of the most in demand players and educators on the modern jazz scene.
Wilson's 13th recording as a leader for Palmetto, "Honey and Salt (Music Inspired by the Poetry of Carl Sandburg)," received a 5-star review in "DownBeat Magazine," which called it "irresistible."
Matt Wilson's Honey and Salt pays tribute to the "poet of the people," Carl Sandberg, who won three Pulitzer Prizes, wrote the definitive biography of Abraham Lincoln, advocated for civil rights and traveled the country collecting traditional folk songs. When Sandburg died in 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson hailed the famed poet as "more than the voice of America, more than the poet of its strength and genius. He was America."
