Back in the Mix (2012)
Dan Wilensky’s Back In The Mix features Mark Soskin (piano), Dean Johnson (bass), Tony Moreno (drums), and special guest Russ Johnson (trumpet) in a musical tour-de-force.
“Brilliant.” –Midwest Record (February, 2012)
Wilensky’s 4th recording as a leader includes new arrangements of Cole Porter’s “Falling In Love With Love,” Gross and Lawrence’s “Tenderly,” “Lament” by the great J.J. Johnson, and 6 new Wilensky originals. The creative virtuosity of long-time band mates Dean Johnson and Tony Moreno propel the group to greater heights. Russ Johnson, recently featured in Lee Konitz’s band, and Mark Soskin, a longtime member of Sonny Rollins’ group, are simply superb.
