Review of the Gerald Wilson Jazz Orchestra

"...There was another classical piece, “Variations on a Theme by Puccini,” which featured violinist Devereaux, now comfortably adapted into the sound mix, as well as the two bari sax players, Taylor and Landry...Anthony Wilson and Yvette Devereaux took over from there with a down and dirty string duel that had the audience howling. By the end, all the horns were standing, drummer Mel Lee was maintaining some type of order in the back, and the crowd was on their feet as well. Gerald Wilson presided over it all, a living testament to the vibrancy of Jazz Past, Present and Future."
