With Tom Harrell
Drummer Gerry Gibbs pays tribute to his father, jazz and vibraphone icon Terry Gibbs. Terry Gibbs’ career included tours and performances with leaders like Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Max Roach, Dizzy Gillespie, and Tito Puente, to name a select few. In addition to his prestige as one of the greatest vibraphonists of all time, Terry Gibbs was especially recognized as a bandleader, winning Best Quartet, Best Big Band, Best Band Leader, and of course, “Best Band in the World” in major polls. Gibbs’ compositions have been recorded by icons including Cannonball Adderley and Count Basie, and the top-shelf musicians featured in this tribute will maintain this ongoing legacy. Featuring modern giants, including Tom Harrell, Nicholas Payton, Paquito D’Rivera, and many more, we can’t think of a better way to honor this quintessential member of jazz history.
Additional Personnel: Mark Gross, Vince Herring, Jerry Weldon, Robin Eubanks, Conrad Herwig, Steve Davis, Frank Greene, Lew Soloff, Marvin Stamm, Joe Magnarelli, Donald Vega, Gary Smulyan, Gerald Cannon, and Tivon Pennicott (2/6)
