The Gerry Gibbs Thrasher Dream Trio with Ron Carter and Kenny Barron return on the heels of two #1 CDs and a 2015 Grammy® Nomination. For their newest release "Live in Studio," Gerry experiments with an unorthodox approach. With only fellow musicians and music industry folks comprising the live studio audience, and with no prior rehearsal or arrangements, Gerry chose top 40 hits from different decades (rarely recorded by jazz artists) for live interpretation by the trio. On six of the tracks, vocalist Cassandra Wilson and trumpet giant Roy Hargrove lent their supreme talents - only after receiving lead sheets 'cold' that day. Only the tempo and groove were outlined; it was left in their capable hands to work magic with this exquisite trio.
