Dave Wilson is a leading jazz saxophonist, recording artist, bandleader, composer, and educator in the Central PA/ Delaware Valley area, with a highly active venue and festival schedule as both a leader of his own contemporary jazz groups and as a sideman. The Dave Wilson Quartet is a Contemporary Jazz group whose aim is to further and bring to fruition the music and vision of Dave Wilson, the artist. Defying categorization, the music is "what sounds good, is what is true to our artistic vision, and can communicate with the audience on a deep level...it's jazz".  

Wilson has worked with pianists Mark Soskin, Jim Ridl, Phil Markowitz, Bobby Avey, Kirk Reese; bassists Tony Marino, Blake Meister, drummers Adam Nussbaum, Bill Goodwin, Frank Russo. He has also shared the stage with the likes of Tim Warfield, Wynton Marsalis, Tom Harrell, Lou Soloff (BS & T), the late Steve Marcus, Conrad Herwig, Gary Smulyan, Steve Smith (from Journey), among others.

The Dave Wilson Quartet’s fourth release There Was Never (ZOHO), featured an all-star lineup of Bobby Avey-Piano, Tony Marino-Bass, Alex Ritz-Drums (members of the Dave Liebman Group), for 6 weeks in 2016 was in the top 50 of the nation-wide Jazz Weekly Jazz Radio Countdown, reaching a high of #18 in the nation, received 3 stars in the February 2016 issue of Downbeat Magazine, and was placed in nomination for a Grammy.  One Night at Chris’ (Dave Wilson Music) is the fifth release of The Dave Wilson Quartet, recorded live at the famous Chris’ Jazz Cafe ‘in Philadelphia and released in the summer of 2019.  Featuring Dave on Tenor and Soprano Saxophones and his working band of Kirk Reese – Piano (East Coast Legend); Tony Marino - Acoustic Bass; Dan Monaghan – Drums (Legendary Philadelphia drummer). From writer Bill Milkowski. “The crackling intensity of One Night at Chris’ is a testament to what can happen on the bandstand on any given night. And this was a particularly good night indeed.”  Achieving “Chartbound” status (top 50 nationwide), on jazz radio, and garnering positive reviews, One Night at Chris is perhaps Dave’s greatest work, yet! The album made the WRTI-FM, Philadelphia Jazz Radio Station “Jazz Album of the Week”, the week of August 26th, 2019. We have a new live recording coming out this spring, featuring, among other selections, several contemporary renditions of John Coltrane recordings, titled Stretching Supreme.
