I have to begin this review by complimenting Positone Records. Every CD this company has sent to me reflects a high quality of jazz artists. It’s been a joy listening to each and every one of them. David Gibson is no exception to this course of excellence. “Inner Agent”, the title tune, is an original composition by Gibson and sets the mood for this entire project. It’s Straight Ahead, no ...Read More

With “Inner Agent”, Gibson’s upcoming release from Posi-tone Records, the trombonist ...Read More

This trombone man almost has enough wind in him to sound like a big band by himself.  A high octane set with a mystical bent, Gibson smokes his way through this set delivering the kind of high energy blowing that is sure to put him on your list of those to keep an ear out for.  Obviously playing from the gut and the heart, this music connects and opens your mind as well as your ears.  Solid stu ...Read More
