    Thank you so much for the feature on Legendary jazz saxophonist, arranger, composer Dr. Frank Foss. Well deserved recognition. I look forward to many more. Be sure to tune in to my upcoming show Exploring America’s Classical Music with GERALD WILSON The Preeminent Jazz Orchestra Composer and Bandleader. Born: September 4, 1918 – Back in 1939, Gerald Wilson joined the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra as a trumpet soloist and an arranger. 66 years later, Wilson is still very active, having long been considered one of the top arrangers, composers and big band leaders in the history of jazz. 86 as of this writing, he has lost none of his enthusiasm, skills or creativity, and still manages to sound quite modern.

    Throughout his career, Gerald Wilson has received incredible acclaim, including winning the Downbeat International Critics Poll both as a composer/arranger and for his big band, and winning the Paul Robeson Award, the NEA American Jazz Masters Fellowship, and a pair of American Jazz Awards. He has been elected to the Mississippi Jazz Hall of Fame, has had his life’s work archived by the Library of Congress and has earned six Grammy® nominations. But his real legacy is his music itself.
