R.I.P. Gerald Wilson, world renowned Jazz Arranger and Trumpeter. He past away on September 8, 2014 at the age of 96. I was fortunate to take this portrait of his, in Beverly Hills, a few years back. He wrote arrangements for many great musicians including Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Ray Charles to name just a few. God bless his soul…. photo: Victor Spinelli Archive.
