Greg Abate with the Tim Ray Trio
Gratitude: Stage Door LIVE @ The Z

On his fourth recording with the Tim Ray Trio, all on Whaling City Sound, Greg Abate and friends search for and find the true essence of jazz. With no formal rehearsals, and subsequently, no overdubs, mulligans, and redo’s, the band captures its performance in truth, in full, and in the moment.
With the seasoned support of Tim Ray (piano), John Lockwood (bass) and Mark Walker (drums), Abate and his various horns (alto, tenor and baritone saxes, as well as flute) cruise through a slate of mainly originals, along with Joe Henderson’s “Inner Urge” and Roland Kirk’s “Serenade to a Cuckoo,” done here on tenor sax rather than the customary flute. Tim Ray and the trio add their surprising version of Fats Waller’s “Jitterbug Waltz.”
Abate is one of jazz’s pure, natural talents, with energy, imagination and technique. The crowd must have really enjoyed this session because the sound, recorded and mixed by John Mailloux, is superb and the performances creative and exhilarating.

Gerry Gibbs Thrasher People
Our People
Multi-instrumentalist and composer Gerry Gibbs returns with his 12th album as a leader, Our PeopleUnlike anything the visionary musician has ever produced before, this epic, 19-part suite is a sonic masterpiece that pays tribute to the many different cultures that make up our world. Our People sounds like a full orchestra but is, in fact, the work of five gifted multi-instrumentalists- two of which are part of Gerry’s versatile Thrasher People Band. The amalgamation of styles and influences create a wonderfully universally significant sound that seems to transcend genre while awing listeners.
