Easterly Winds is an album by American jazz pianist Jack Wilson featuring performances recorded and released on the Blue Note label in 1967.[2]


The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars and stated "Easterly Winds provides an excellent contrast to Jack Wilson's first Blue Note album, Something Personal. Where his label debut was cool and romantic, Easterly Winds is a brassy, funky collection of soul-jazz and hard bop with instant appeal... It's another impressive, enjoyable effort from one of the most underrated pianists on Blue Note's '60s roster".[3]
