Drummer Matt Wilson is one of the friendliest guys in jazz, and his music, even at its most complex, reflects that: It's unpretentious and full of easygoing swing. He briought the latest edition of his working band, the Matt Wilson Quartet, to the CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I., along with a set of new arrangements for string quartet and guest vocalist.
