Product Notes

Gary Gibson's second recording combines his unique harmonic writing style with a variety of world music genres, including calypso, samba, bossa nova, guaguanco, soca, etc. Ejazznews critic Dave Binder: '...Gibson expands on the strengths of the first album, while at the same time breaking new ground. As a composer he is able to take on the traditions of Caribbean music and inject a sense of harmony that makes it all his own. There are plenty of memorable melodies and infectious rhythms to appeal to a broad range of listeners. Easy on the ears, while at the same time filled with challenge, Countermelodies is a fine effort from an artist who deserves a broader audience.' JazzReview.com critic Wendy Ross : '...strong in melody and rhythm, with an effervescent, feel-good vibe that will please a cross-section of music fans. Gibson delivers a great listening experience on this CD. His devotion to this unique sound shows plainly in it's quality.' Largely self-recorded (with Gibson on steelpans, vibraphone, percussion, drumset, and keyboards), but with numerous special guest musicians, Gibson expands the multi-tracking approach from his first CD, 'My Two Cents.' Guest performances include fine tenor saxophone soloing by Rich Cole, guitar work by Marco de Carvalho, solid bass foundations from both David Pascal (electric) and Doug Miller (acoustic), and Brazilian percussion expert Jeff Busch, along with many fine performances by flutist/soprano saxophonist Richard Warner, whom Gibson featured on his debut disk, 'My Two Cents.' Jazz steel pan legned Andy Narell calls Gary Gibson 'one of the few people writing progressive music for the pan and sounding original.' Gibson's originality is on full display in 'CounterMelodies.'
