Gerald Wilson – Detroit

Gerald Wilson has long been a favorite of mine.  And even though he’s in his 90’s, his latest album, “Detroit,” is one of his best. It’s a tribute to his home town and it’s a swinging record. It ranges from big band swing, to mellow ballads, to that Spanish vibe he’s know for. “Detroit” is simply a great record and Wilson continues to show just how jazz is supposed to sound.
