Long associated with the Los Angeles jazz scene, Gerald Wilson traveled to New York City's Clinton Recording Studio to record "New York, New Sound," which was produced by Crusaders founder and Mack Avenue president Stix Hooper. Featured soloists in the 18-piece orchestra are some of the best jazz players that New York City has to offer, including Jon Faddis, Lewis Nash, Anthony Wilson, Kenny Barron, Jimmy Heath, Clark Terry, and Renee Rosnes, with Hooper adding his distinctive drumming to four of the CD's ten tracks. Included in the 10-song collection are Wilson's arrangements of the classic Miles Davis tune 'Milestones', Coltrane's 'Equinox' and eight Wilson-penned gems, including 'Viva Tirado', which was a Top 30 instrumental hit in 1970 recorded by the Mexican-American band, El Chicano.

NEW YORK HAS A NEW SOUND

"Gerald Wilson has a sound that it slower and more mellow than the excellent State Street Sweet. He came to New York to the best jazzmen there. Kenny Barron is my favorite. Blues for the Count is choice. Milestones kind of marks his career of fifty years. This striking man knows how to arrange his own and other peoples works."

"Nothing will ever top Gerald Wilson's wonderful band from the
1960's but it's great to hear Wilson's compositons just about anytime!
His New York/New Sounds gives us some of his best songs, from the 1960's up to his more recent Theme from Monterey, with a band full of top notch players. I especially like the updated fiery M. Capetillo and the soft stirrings of Teri. I was glad to see this CD was nominated for a grammy and although it didn't win (which it should have, actually the original version of Theme for Monterey should have won when it was nominated too but that's another story) it's still worth a listen!"
