Dave Wilczewski was an American saxophonist living in Stockholm. Working with many groups on the road as well as in the recording studio, Dave was one of the most outstanding and coveted jazzsoloists in Sweden. He played with a melodic unique and personal style, which assembled many elements from different jazz and fusion areas. He has played on over 200 albums and in 2006, released his own album, “Room In The Clouds”. This album is a mature and relaxed offering from a musician who is equally gifted as a player and writer. This distinctive recording will resonate with fans of the contemporary music scene and undoubtedly stand the test of time.
Dave Wilczewski, a member of the group Vital Information, is highlighted on the latest Surround Sound Super Audio CD release from Opus 3 Records entitled “Room In The Clouds”. The album features 12 selections that were composed and arranged by Dave Wilczewski. Vital Information drummer Steve Smith says that “Room In The Clouds is a mature and relaxed offering from a musician who is equally gifted as a player and writer. The instrumentation and conception of this group is, at times, reminiscent of the early Vital Information recordings that Dave participated in as a writer/player, but the music on Room In The Clouds unfolds slowly, the musicians clearly allowing the music to lead them from moment to moment without imposing their “playing ability” onto the music.”
The album is an original Direct Stream Sigital (DSD) recording made at Opus 3 studios in Sweden. Equipment used on the session includes the Sonoma DSD Workstation, 2 Genex GX 8500 Recorders and the EMM Labs Meitner ADC8 and DAC8 MK IV DSD converters. The album was produced by the artist and engineered by Opus 3 label owner Jan-Eric Persson and mastered by Thomas Eberger and Jan-Eric Persson at Cutting Room AB.
