"My prayer to the family, it's been many years, So glad that I had the pleasure to meet Mr Wilson and to know his family. I went to school with his daughter Jeri and met Anthony when he was 4yrs old, His music will be part of my life."

"To the Gerald Wilson family and fans:
Just recently heard about the end of this long and beautiful life on our local public radio jazz show. Great memories of the Lighthouse, CalState LA, and those amazing Pacific Jazz albums with the Latin influences. Even as a teenager I was struck by his unique conducting style.
And, man, did he always look cool!
He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
