Musicalmemoirs’s likes the no nonsense straight ahead jazz from David Gibson

leave a comment

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

WBGO has David Gibson’s “Inner Agent” on its radar

When trombonist David Gibson put out “Boom” last year, one listen and you knew this guy likes working with no net. Told me the feeling was exhilarating to make music this way. It’s also quite fulfilling to listen to and see live, something I made sure happened with David Gibson.

Midwest Record like what they hear on “Inner Agent” by David Gibson

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

All About Jazz – chimes in first on the new one “Inner Agent” by David Gibson

Those ideals are jazz to the core, ...Read More
