Dan Wilensky Releases Group Therapy

Speechless Productions is pleased to announce the release of Group Therapy, the new studio recording by Dan Wilensky featuring guitarist David Phelps, bassist Dean Johnson, and drummer Tony Moreno. Group Therapy was recorded March 21, 2011 at Charlestown Road Studios in Hampton, New Jersey by Paul Wickcliffe. The CD includes 8 original compositions, a new take on Charlie Chaplins "Smile" and a reconstruction of the pop hit "Downtown" featuring Tony Moreno.

“Wilensky's individuality can be heard with his first notes. His sound is bright crisp and completely relaxed in all registers. His lines are direct to the point and completely his own; he does not sound like anyone else.” –Saxophone Journal (March 2011).

Discussing the process Wilensky says "We recorded it in one day following the model of many of our favorite records from the past. This project celebrates several gifts we often take for granted: spontaneous collective improvisation; harmony in discord; the moment. Every time we play the possibilities multiply." Group Therapy and Wilensky's other CDs and books are available at CDBaby Amazon and iTunes.'
