BDG is saddened about the passing of the late great Don Wilson who's life on this side of eternal life ended Thursday May 17th, 2012. Don Wilson was a "jazz giant", a true professional and a gentleman. He was known for his ability to play any song that was called out to be played by anyone. He did not need the music and he was a musical genius. Don Wilson was a band leader, musical director and the focal pianist for many renowned artists including his wife Jackie Wilson. BDG was so honored to have had opportunities to participate in so many music venues with Don Wilson. Don Wilson was also the pianist for Tony Williams' Quartet and Ensemble since 2000. Don Wilson also was the pianist for the Bill Cosby Reunion Band. Don Wilson will be missed by the world.
