Abram Wilson was created in Feet. Smith, Arkansas, in 1973 and was raised in New Orleans. Introduced to jazz by his acoustic guitar playing dad Willie C. Jr. and musically willing mom Doris, Wilson used the drums as a kid. He began playing the trumpet at age group nine and moved into the brand new Orleans Middle for Innovative Arts at age group 13 (where he was mentored by Clyde Kerr Jr., and caused Lester Wright at O. Perry Walker SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL), graduating from both universities in 1991. Going to Ohio Wesleyan College or university and studying traditional trumpet with Larry Griffin, he gained a B.A. in Music Education, after that going for the Eastman College of Music in upstate NY where he examined with Ralph Alessi and gained his master’s level. Moving to NEW YORK briefly, he was an associate of fellow trumpeter Roy Hargrove’s big music group, and followed Ruth Dark brown. He expatriated to London in 2002. There he collaborated with Gary Crosby, Soweto Kinch, Denys Baptiste, Patrick Clahar, as well as the Jamaica Jazz All Superstars; he also led his very own groups. He trained at various locations in Britain, and co-led Tomorrow’s Warriors. In 2006 he gained the jazz category on the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee. Wilson’s audio was a variety of contemporary jazz and blues with distinctive hip-hop affects and theatrical nuance. Unfortunately, in June 2012 he passed away of cancers in London on the early age of 38.
