Drummer Nation #78 Guest Matt Wilson “It’s All About Imagination”

Matt Wilson is truly inspiring. Undeterred by personal obstacles, his playing, like his personality, embodies humor, warmth, surprise, and always an infectious sense of swing. It’s no wonder he is one of the most in-demand players and educators on the modern jazz scene. For this interview, I decided to ask him to respond to some of the many quotable quips he’s known for. What emerges, is a glimpse of the inner joy that drives him.
