Dan Wilson was in a relative’s basement when he first heard a recording of Wes Montgomery, the influential jazz guitarist largely responsible for carrying the guitar into the riotous world of mid-20th-century bop. It was in that moment, dumbstruck by Montgomery’s single-note progressions and block-chord soloing, that Wilson decided he would pursue a career as a jazz musician. Since studying with a collection of elder statesmen that has included gospel artists and Brazilian jazz guitarists, Wilson has alternated between touring overseas and teaching jazz guitar and improvisation at Cuyahoga Community College. He stops at Akron Civic Theatre in support of the release of his debut album, To Whom It May Concern, a concept album inspired by whoever it is that keeps taking his parking spot.<p>

Akron Civic Theatre

The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
