Monterey Moods

Regular price $12.99
Release Date: September 25, 2007

For the 20th annual festival in 1977, founder Jimmy Lyons asked Wilson to compose an extended work, “Happy Birthday Monterey.” Gerald followed that with “Theme For Monterey” for the 1997 festival (which was nominated for two Grammy’s two years later). And at this year’s 50th anniversary Monterey Jazz Festival, Wilson unveils “Monterey Moods,” the moving suite that is the focus of this recording.
