Wild is the Wind

“Absolutely recommended without hesitation.”

Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine

“This record is built around woodwind instruments and includes a stellar cast of first-class performers with whom Wilson has worked over the years. Musically, it is a strange mix of genres from jazz to soundscape, a diversity which reflects the composer’s openness to influences from multiple sources as well as his engagement with contemporary political issues.”
