“Two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves. They flickered out saying: “It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds,” recites drummer and bandleader Matt Wilson recites in his composition “Bubbles”. Inspired by the poem by Carl Sandburg, the song reflects the message of his 10th album as a leader for Palmetto Records.
An Attitude for Gratitude (February 14th / Palmetto) is the 4th album by the award-winning ensemble Matt Wilson’s Arts & Crafts, an extraordinary collective of musical personalities featuring Wilson, Terell Stafford (trumpet), Gary Versace (piano, organ and accordion) and Martin Wind (bass). “This album celebrates having a loving family, a fabulous band and a remarkable community of people who surround and inspire me."
