September 21, 2014 "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.

Viva Gerald!" - Bill Wray (Framingham, MA)
