Biography

Steven Wilson, 9 February 1961, Hampton, Virginia, USA. Wilson began formal music studies at the age of 12 and was soon playing alto saxophone in local R&B bands, but was quickly diverted by jazz. While attending Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond he developed his interest in jazz and played alto and soprano with the VCU Jazz Orchestra. He worked with several visiting musicians, such as Jaki Byard and Frank Foster, sometimes playing with them. In 1986, he became a member of the Out Of The Blue band, sponsored by Blue Note Records and the following year moved to New York. He toured nationally and internationally, performing with Lionel Hampton’s band. In 1988, Wilson joined drummer Ralph Peterson’s group, Fo’tet. By the end of the decade he had notched up spells with Renée Rosnes, Michele Rosewoman, the American Jazz Orchestra, the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and Buster Williams.
