Editorial Reviews

Detroit is Mr. Gerald Wilson's fourth release on Mack Avenue Records, and the follow-up to his critically acclaimed Monterey Moods. Commissioned by the Detroit International Jazz Festival to celebrate it's 30th anniversary, Detroit is a six part suite that evokes both the edge and the ambition of this blue collar city. An iconic Big Band composer, arranger and leader, Gerald gathers his bi-coastal roster of musicians together into one true House of Jazz.

gerald wilson's detroit is the stuff of legends- a super talented line up of musicians and beautifully written music, with the recording serving up the great exchanges that occur between the two. this is what it sounds like when you love what you do. the best of 2009 for sure!

Format: Audio CD
This CD pays homage to Mr. Wilson's hometown of 1934-1939. The "Detroit Suite" (the first 6 tunes) was commissioned by the Detroit International Jazz Festival in 2009. It proves that Mr. Wilson still has the great musical imagination and arranging skills that has made him one of the top jazz orchestral leaders (at over 90 years of age!)for such a long time. In reference to a former review asking why "Cass Tech" sounds like Benny Golson's "Along Comes Betty", please note that the sub-title of the song is "Variations on a Theme by B.G." (i.e. Benny Golson)- thus honoring Mr. Golson. If you like jazz, especially big band, you cannot go wrong with Gerald Wilson.

Being a long time fan/collector (Pacific Jazz recording label) of Greald Wilson's recordings this "DETROIT" is just another of his master pieces. Thank you.

Without making it too much of a mood album, Wilson seems to find a good balance between a time/place theme and just giving us a fine listening experience -- if you love big-band jazz as much as I do. The cut about his teacher, "Miss Gretchen," is a special delight. Can you believe this guy is over 90 and still giving the world such great sounds?
