In this chapter, the author reflects on Wilson's impact on music and the world, and the way in which he accomplished this. Wilson passed away on September 8, 2014. The author describes Wilson as a mosaic. He came from a very African American context, a place, a heritage—something that molded him and that he proceeded to mold into life. Wilson never stood still, always seeking change and renewal, challenges and learning, innovative newness and tradition. Wilson's art can also be described as mestizo as well as cosmopolitan But there remains a dimension of his ideology that dominates the above labels and analytical concepts. And that is his primal identity as a black man.
