    First post!

    I did a quick search on Danny Wilson and didn't come up with a lot. I've been trying to findout who he has played with besides Lorber. His work on Water Signs blows me away and I'd like to get some more recordings if I can.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    :meh:

    He's also, apparently, a bass harmonica player:

    Unfortunately, that doesn't help me at all.

    Water Signs,Wizard Island (A MUST ! Listen),and Galaxian are the only things that I know of that he has done with the early Jeff lorber Fusion Band other than seeing him hanging around the Portland,Oregon area with Nathaniel Philips and some other former members of the group Pleasure"he does on occasions,plays with local bands/artist and yes he still a monster player

    Can you still get recordings of these? I have Water Signs on tape, but the only stuff I have from the other 2 is what's on the collection CD.

    If you have Kazaa you may be able to download some of Jeff's early material as mention in the thread.

    I will try to find other resources for you if I can. .......Stay in touch.

    That's a good idea. I wonder why I haven't thought of that. I'll take a look when I get home tonight.

    I have been searching for Danny for a long time. I havent responded to forums in the past. Really because I wanted to preserve Dannys privacy. I was a roommate of Dannys in 1989 at Fort Riley Kansas in the US Army. I was a Bass player for the First ID band, and Danny had OjT'd(on the job training) at the time. Danny basically got to Fort Riley under a different mos and then tried out for the Band. Danny was amazing. He wasnt real good at reading music, but that didnt matter. Danny just heard the progressions and would play the groove. Really incredible. I sucked compared to Danny. So Danny informed me he recorded on Wizard Island, and Watersign. Danny also said he had recorded on another track, but I am not sure what. I had asked Danny why he joined the Army and he said it was to get away from a woman. Seriously Danny was awesome to listen to. He played in the quartet. Long sad story short. Danny was discharged from the Army because of a Crack addiction. It was Sad. Danny had pawned all his stuff, and I dropped him off on a corner in Junction City kansas on his last day in the Army. I have hoped for many years that Danny beat his addiction and was back in the scene. If anyone knows how he is or if hes ok that would be great to know. Funny I was like 19 when I met Danny. I remember asking him when he started playing. Danny said he was at a concert listening to (currently cant remember) and two weeks later he was onstage playing with him. I miss Danny and wish only the best for him.
