    Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tape

    Plated and pressed at RTI

    Born in Mississippi, Gerald Wilson spent formative years in Detroit before launching a celebrated career as a trumpeter, composer, arranger, and bandleader. After moving to Los Angeles, Wilson signed with Pacific Jazz and in 1961 began a decade-long run of spectacular recordings including 1962's Moment of Truth. The action-packed nine-song set (including seven originals) is a showcase for Wilson's many strengths as he uses the vibrant colors his dynamic big band to paint a variety of musical scenes including the swaggering blues of the title track, the irrepressible Latin groove of "Viva Tirado," a fleet-footed version of "Milestones" by Miles Davis, and the evocative textures of "Teri" featuring Joe Pass on guitar. Other notable members of the ensemble include trumpeter Carmell Jones, trombonist Lou Blackburn, alto saxophonist Bud Shank, tenor saxophonist Harold Land, pianist Jack Wilson, and drummer Mel Lewis.
