Stay tuned for the new album dropping in February 2017 by renowned drummer, composer and bandleader Gerry S Gibbs who celebrates legendary Jazz Rock fusion band Weather Report with a straight ahead Jazz approach.
“Joe Zawinul always had the utmost respect for maestros Kenny Barron and Ron Carter. I am certain that their Thrasher Trio-mate Gerry Gibbs’ name would have been added to that select list had Joe been able to hear Gerry’s realization of the music of Weather Report as played by his new trio that includes:
Alex Collins on Piano, Fender Rhodes, Organ & Vocals plus Hans Glavishnig on Acoustic & Electric Bass. Here is a unique reading of Weather Report’s music that is totally fun to listen to. As an insider, I can say that this album sheds new light on the WR canon while spotlighting the intrinsic talent and sounds of Gerry’s new band. I feel the better for having heard this recording. P.S. Jaco would have loved Hans’ playing on “A Remark You Made” … I know that I do.”
