Quartet, Trio or Duo
Dave Wilson has released three CDs under the quartets name: Spiral, My Time and Through The Time. Each release has garnered reviews in National publications and at Worldwide internet websites as well as airplay and chart status at regional and national radio stations.
"Spiral", released on Summit records, and featuring internationally acclaimed artists Phil Markowitz, Tony Marino, and Adam Nussbaum was awarded 3 and 1/2 stars in Downbeat Magazine. Dave will be going into the studio this winter to record his long awaited follow-up to the critically acclaimed "Spiral". He has several originals that he has been honing in on the past year or two on the club and festival circuit, and promises this effort to be his finest yet; deep, thoughtful, yet exciting music, with again internationally recognized personnel on board.

In 2009 and 2010 they were the headlining act for the York Jazzfest, in York, PA. with an all star group featuring the likes of Phil Markowitz, Jim Ridl, Tony Marino, Adam Nussbaum, and Butch Reed. They have also made regular appearances at Chris’ Jazz Café in center city Philadelphia, including a CD release on December 3rd, 2010 featuring Jim Ridl on Piano, Steve Varner on Bass, and Adam Nussbaum on drums, as well as Twins Jazz Club in Washington, DC.

As duo Dave will usually be accompanied by a keyboardist, with a drum machine for the more commercial gigs.

With Danny (who also double on vocals) they have combined to form the Dave Wilson/Danny Stuber "Smooth" Jazz Group (Duo, Trio, Quartet); which presents a variety of music for all kinds of musical settings. The Trio has a regular engagement at the Iberian Lounge at the Hotel Hershey.
