Esoteric ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM). Corbett vs. Dempsey. philip wilson - master of infinite soft touch - where other drummers got lost in action - philip did it with one single beat and silence - philip often was underrecorded because his touch was to sensitive to most (engineers) ears, same with maestro sunny murray. beautiful rapport with olu dara so this is THE trumpet & percussion duet record.

PHILLIP WILSON - Esoteric. Filed under Avant-Garde Jazz By PHILLIP WILSON.

Phillip Wilson (September 8, 1941 – March 25, 1992) was an American jazz drummer, known as a founding member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and as a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Born in St. Louis, Phillip Wilson was a third generation musician. His grandfather, Ira Kimball, was a percussionist playing on the riverboats that traveled down the Mississippi to New Orleans.

The album is intended as a tribute to the original Art Ensemble drummer, but falls short in both time (42:16) and substance. The tracks featuring longtime running mate Bowie are well worth it, though. Cool" is perfectly conceived, an easy, bluesy swing footnoted by Parker's soulful ostinato bass and Bowie's wah-wah trumpet. The nine-plus minute "Philadelphia" is much looser and wilder, and "Steel & Breath" has Bowie and Wilson going at it like they did in the '70s. On the Laswell cuts, Wilson's best percussionistic attributes are unfortunately buried by Laswell and electric bass guitarist Jonas Hellborg. Laswell cops fake electric guitar and bailophone sounds on "Baliphone Dub," while an aimless "Gammatron" goes nowhere. A better homage to Wilson should be on the horizon, but the Bowie-Parker-Wilson selections could mean there's more material in the can. That would be welcome.

Phillip Wilson-percussion. Olu Dara-trumpet, serpent. A rare taste of what the masterful Wilson does in the driver's seat, Esoteric has been remastered from the original tapes and features Klaus Baumgartner's original cover design on this, its first ever reissue, nearly forty years since it was waxed. -Corbett Vs.

In November 1977 and May 1978, months before drummer Phillip Wilson recorded his great LP Duet with trumpeter Lester Bowie for the Improvising Artists label, Wilson hit the studio for Esoteric, a recording of solos and duets with cornetist Olu Dara. Wilson (1941-1992) was one of the key percussionists in creative music, the Art Ensemble of Chicago's early trapsman, one third of the fusion band Full Moon, and an all around fount of invention and sensitivity.

Duet is an album by trumpeter Lester Bowie and drummer Phillip Wilson recorded in 1978 and released on the Improvising Artists label. It features three duet performances by Bowie and Wilson. Certainly they feed off each other's energy in counterpointed reverie, but the music goes beyond being merely spontaneous or made up on the spot.
