Song of the Day #141

Song of the Day: Teri is an instrumental composition written by the wonderful jazz arranger, conductor, and bandleader Gerald Wilson. The sumptuous ballad appears on Wilson's "Moment of Truth" album, and it features the tender acoustic guitar sounds of Joe Pass. Check out the audio clip on "The Best of Joe Pass: Pacific Jazz Years," and a later version of it re-recorded by Wilson with New York area musicians: "New York, New Sound." Anthony Wilson is the guitar soloist on that recording (Anthony is Gerald's son).
