GERALD WILSON BIG BAND MOMENT OF TRUTH

PACIFIC JAZZ RECORDS 1962                      PJ-61 LP 


In 1960, Wilson formed a Los Angeles-based band that began
a series of superb recordings for the Pacific Jazz label.
Musicians in the band at various times included lead trumpeter
 Snooky Young, trumpeter Carmell Jones,
saxophonists Harold Land, Don Raffell and Teddy Edwards,
 guitarist Joe Pass, vibists Roy Ayers and Bobby
Hutcherson, and drummers Mel Lewis and Mel Lee.
His wife of over fifty years, Josefina Villasenor Wilson, is
Mexican-American. A number of Wilson's compositions showed
 his love of Spanish/Mexican themes, especially
 "Viva Tirado," which later became
 a hit for the rock band El Chicano.
