The Plan of Paris is an album of eight songs by guitarist and composer Anthony Wilson, recorded during the first year of the pandemic. Side One features songs about loneliness and loss, binge-watching TV, doomed relationships, and disorientation during times of profound loss. Side Two is a suite of four songs composed by Anthony Wilson in response to a commission from the Jazz Coalition Commission Fund. Of them, he says, "'The Bridge,' 'Noontide,' 'Already Won,' and 'Pilgrim' are dedicated to the memory and enduring legacy of US Congressman and champion of civil rights, the Honorable John Lewis."
Traveling freely through a musical space beyond genre, The Plan of Paris is a tender, meditative, personal collection of music that features gorgeous contributions from a dream team of renowned musicians: pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist David Piltch, drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarist Harrison Whitford, keyboardist Patrick Warren, and clarinetist Brian Walsh. Produced by Joe Harley and Anthony Wilson.
Demo quality sound, sophisticated musical presentation capped by Wilson's impassioned vocals make The Plan of Paris a memorable, worth repeating spin.
