I lit out from Reno I was trailed by twenty hounds Didn't get to sleep that night Till the morning came around Set out runnin' but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep tonight Ran into the Devil, babe He loaned me twenty bills I spent the night in Utah In a cave up in the hills Set out runnin' but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep tonight I ran down to the levee But the Devil caught me there He took my twenty dollar bill And he vanished in the air Set out runnin' but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep tonight Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night The first one's named sweet Anne Marie and she's my hearts delight The second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail Got a wife in Chino, babe And one in Cherokee First one says she's got my child But it don't look like me Set out runnin' but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep tonight Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night The first one's named sweet Anne Marie and she's my hearts delight The second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail Got a wife in Chino, babe And one in Cherokee First one says she's got my child But it don't look like me I set out runnin' but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep tonight

Court is in session, a verdict is in No appeal on the docket today just my own sin The walls cold and pale, the cage made of steel Screams fill the room, alone I drop and kneel Silence now the sound, my breath the only motion around Demons cluttering around, my face showing no emotion Shackled by my sentence, expecting no return Here there is no penance, my skin begins to burn So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one I hear a thunder in the distance, see a vision of a cross I feel the pain that was given on that sad day of loss A lion roars in the darkness, only he holds the key A light to free me from my burden and grant me life eternally Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head No time for mourning Ain't got no time Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head No time for mourning Ain't got no time So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one I cry out to God, seeking only His decision Gabriel stand and confirms, I've created my own prison I cry out to God, seeking only His decision Gabriel stand and confirms, I've created my own prison So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one (And I said, ohh) So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head No time for mourning Ain't got no time

about

The CD "Spiral" by the Dave Wilson Quartet was released officially on June 15th, 2010, courtesy of Summit Records, a nationally based label, located in Phoenix, Arizona (www.summitrecords.com). This features 6 original compositions in a contemporary mode including "Spiral", "Ocean Blue", "Movin' On", "Remembering", "Summer Breezes", and "Like GS 2"; plus unique arrangements of three contemporary pop classics including "Friend of the Devil" by the psychedelic jam band icons the Grateful Dead; "(You’re the) Biggest Part of Me" by the L.A. 70's studio sensation Ambrosia; and "My Own Prison" by the Alt Christian superstar rock band Creed; topped off by a lyrical and moving take on Tonhino Horta's beautiful jazz waltz, "Francisca" and a soaring rendition of pianist Richie Bierach's epic "Elm". Recorded at the famed Red Rock Studios, Saylorsburg, PA, Kent Heckman engineering, Dave enlisted the help of Phil Markowitz on Piano, Tony Marino on Bass, and Adam Nussbaum on Drums, all internationally acclaimed and renowned.

Asked why he chose these tunes to record Dave said, “These songs, including the original compositions and the "cover" tunes, are all, for various reasons, close to my heart. They are like personal statements of where I am at in my life, musically and otherwise. When I make and play music like this I am trying to communicate such heartfelt sentiments to the listener, whether they are in the club, the concert hall, or listening to the recording.”

Spiral received radio airplay from some 40 stations nationwide along with positive critical reviews. It achieved “Chartbound” status in the Jazz Weekly countdown, topping at #51 nationwide, (staying in the 50’s for over 8 weeks), as well as #41 in the Roots Radio Report! It topped in media ranking of #10 in Boston (WGBH); #5 in Dallas (KNTU); #17 in San Diego, and peaking at #8 in Philadelphia. Spiral received a great review (3 and ½ stars!) in the November issue of Downbeat Magazine, and was reviewed positively in the December issue of Jazz Times.

From Downbeat Magazine (3 and 1/2 stars):
“With a crack band in pianist Phil Markowitz, bassist Tony Marino and Adam Nussbaum on drums, saxophonist Dave Wilson knows how to pick them and the music...sparked by Wilson's edgy yet loose tenor playing along with vivid comping and soloing by Markowitz, sold support from Marino and sensitive yet fiery playing from the always reliable Nussbaum...indicates a band comfort level both wide and deep.”

From Jazz Times:
"With stellar support from Pianist Phil Markowitz, Bassist Tony Marino, and drummer Adam Nussbaum, Pennsylvania-based saxophonist-educator Dave Wilson elevates his game and blows with authority on this collection of originals and smartly plucked covers. From the aggressive title track (with Wilson channeling his inner Trane on tenor) to the soothing bossa nova “Ocean Blue”, the expansive modal number “Movin’ On” and an intriguing variation on Scott LaFaro’s “Gloria’s Step” (titled “Like GS Step 2”) the saxophonist showcases a bold sound, fertile ideas, and fluid lines."
