Celebrates release of new recording Honey and Salt

Wilson and his all-star band featuring cornetist Ron Miles, multi-reedist Jeff Lederer, bassist Martin Wind and guitarist/vocalist Dawn Thomson, are touring in support of their “irresistible” new recording Honey and Salt.  The project pays tribute to “poet of the people” Carl Sandburg on the 50th anniversary of his death.

“…a big-hearted comedian who likes a happy workplace…as rowdy as a halftime band.”– Kevin Whitehead, NPR’s Fresh Air
