The Jazz Pilgrimage of Gerald Wilson

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter takes an in-depth look at a significant aspect of Wilson's life and music, that of Latino culture. Wilson met and soon married Josefina Villaseñor in 1948. They had three children, and Wilson titled compositions after each of them. The importance of family, especially as it plays a major role in Latin American and African American culture, has in many ways sculpted the artistic and spiritual profile of Wilson. His marriage to Josefina not only changed his personal life but also changed much of the cultural context that had always been such an essential element in his artistic enculturation and creative approach and output.

Keywords:   Gerald Wilson, Latino culture, Latin music, Josefina Villaseñor, jazz musicians
