Thad Wilson

Thad Wilson Quartet will feature new and original music that celebrates the trumpet

Thad was born in Fort Dix, New Jersey; however, his musical life started as a child living in Montgomery, Alabama under the direction of Mr. Curtis Hollinger.

At fifteen, he moved back to New Jersey where he was quickly recognized for his talent and awarded the All-American High School Music Award and a place in New Jersey’s All-State Jazz Ensemble. Shortly thereafter, he began studying privately with Jimmy Owens, former member of Dizzy Gillespie‘s Big Band. It was Jimmy who gave Thad a glimpse into the life of a true professional musician. In his early days, Thad performed at the Village Gate, Blue Note, Visiones, Knitting Factory and many other New York City venues.

While in New York, Thad was a member of Charlie Persip’s Super Band and had a brief stint with Illinois Jacquet. From there, he lived in Atlanta for a brief time and made his way on the early hip-hop scene performing with Bone Crusher, Khalfani, and many others. Over his career, Thad has performed alongside countless greats such as James Moody, Benny Golson, Steve Turre, Cecil Bridgewater, Andrew White, Buck Hill, Keter Betts, Johnny O’Neal, Russell Malone, Roy Hargrove, and Wynton Marsalis. Currently, Thad tours with the legendary group, the Blackbyrds. He also composers and performs his live film scores all over the world.
