O’s Notes: Wilson is a 92-year old veteran jazz composer and conductor who seems to never wane in spirit or prowess. For Legacy he invites a stellar group of musicians including Alan Ferber (tb), Antonio Hart (sax), Jeremy Pelt (t), Sean Jones (t) with a potent rhythm section of Renee Roses (p), Lewis Nash (d), Peter Washington (b) and his son Anthony Wilson (g). The program has twelve grand tracks highlighted by a tribute to the windy city that swings. This is yet another gem in the large collection of Wilson’s jewels.
