Appearances by

James Tartaglia, Mark Huggett





The first Album from the Wilson Huggett Project was nominated for Jazz CD of the year in South Africa. Their new release is “Field of Hope” and is the result of 2 years of writing and performing. Part of the album was recording in South Africa during their successful recent tour.

Contributions to the album include New York based Norwegian trumpeter Yngvil Vatn Guttu, Brazilian and Cuban percussionist Dave Willetts the tenor sax of James Tartaglia and the South African musicians Luke Townsend and Rob Payne


Mark Huggett is an English drummer and producer, having played with artists as diverse as Annie Whitehead, Gaz Mayall and Prince Buster. Marks’ drumming combines elements of Jazz, Ska and rock and electronic music. Dan Wilson is from Durban and has worked with Kenny Henson and Richard Ellis in the South African world music band Endangered Species.

The album contains evocative performances and textures drawing on different cultural roots. Musical influences range from Brian Eno to the African Jazz Pioneers and from Amon Tobin to Jim Black and Pink Floyd.
Electronica mixed with Jazz and Funk and Rock, but always with a lot of heart and soul.

Some of the album was recorded in Durban, but much use was made of cloud file sharing facilities like Drop Box to quickly exchange bass and drum tracks .
Using high bandwidth Internet has meant that serious musical collaboration between London and Durban is possible. Dan uploaded his Bass in South Africa, which was downloaded in London, drums added, mixed with parts from the US and sent back in a short amount of time.
