April 1997

Gerry Gibbs
The Trasher
Qwest/Warner Bros.

From the start, it's clear you're going to hear a fresh, lively and engaging debut from gifted leader, composer-arranger, and drummer, Gerry Gibbs (son of vibist Terry). Gibbs & crew infuse 11 diverse selections (eight jubilant originals) with bounteous energy and consummate imagination. Gibbs adroitly goads soprano/tenor saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, vibraphonist Joe Locke, violinist Mark Feldman, bassist Derek "Oles" Oleszkiewicz, and, (splitting duties) pianists Billy Childs and Uri Caine. All that glitters is Gibbs...and his Midas touch. A magnificent debut!
