WEATHER OR NOT

Gerry Gibbs & Thrasher People

 It is unique and kind of madcap, the sign of a fertile artist plowing through all the ideas swirling around his brain. Gerry Gibbs is the artist, and “Weather or Not” is his new, two-disc set. Disc 1 is devoted to covering a variety of tasty material from the legendary ‘Weather Report,’ while Disc 2 features Gibbs cranking up the creative juices on a set of 16 originals, traversing from flamenco to pulse-quickening funk, calypso, gospel Latin jazz, R&B and plenty of all-out swing. It is Gibbs’ most audacious and fully-realized project to date, an early crowning achievement from a restless spirit and a triumphant, indefatigable artist.
