Jazz in the Box: Anthony Wilson

Anthony Wilson is a guitarist and composer known for a nuanced body of work that moves fluidly across genres. An inventive soloist and sensitive accompanist, Wilson has provided texture and authority both on stage and in recording sessions for jazz legends such as Ron Carter, Mose Allison, Bobby Hutcherson, Bennie Wallace, Joe Sample, Al Jarreau, and the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. A gifted composer as well, Wilson won the Thelonious Monk Institute International Composers’ Competition in 1995. Since then he has received commissions from IAJE, the Henry Mancini Institute, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.

The hottest little jazz club around is GPAC’s Jazz in the Box! Featuring both new and well-established artists, Jazz in the Box gives you an opportunity to get up close and personal with live jazz. Cabaret seating and drinks for purchase make this a perfect way to kick off your weekend.

This season finale of our Jazz in the Box Series will be a single, expanded performance seated on our main stage at 8pm. For more information, please contact the GPAC Box Office at 901-751-7500.
