Trombonist David Gibson has enjoyed a varied musical career which is deeply rooted in the genres of jazz and funk. While reared in Oklahoma, Gibson’s musical journey steered him to New York City. Jazz luminary Curtis Fuller said about Gibson, “Out of all the young players I hear in the music today, David is one of very few who speaks the language of jazz”.

David’s latest release, “Inner Agent”, is his fourth for Posi-tone Records. It follows on the heels of “Boom” and Gibson sees it as “a natural continuation of what we began with ‘BOOM’. There are more risks taken and more trust present in the performances. Like any successful team, the members of this quintet are often willing to risk failure knowing that they can depend on the support of their teammates to provide a soft landing.” The “team” of which Gibson speaks is the incredibly dynamic collection of NYC-based musicians that includes Freddie Hendrix-trumpet, Theo Hill-piano, Alexander Claffy-bass, and Kush Abadey-drums. The rapport between these musicians is palpable as they use their powers to propel the music.

Gibson’s early experience in New York had him performing with Slide Hampton, Jon Faddis, Roy Hargrove, Jimmy Heath, James Moody and others. In 2003, he was a finalist in the Thelonius Monk International Trombone Competition and has subsequently released seven recordings, as a leader. His current quintet has been cutting its teeth in the jazz clubs of NYC, such as Smalls, Fat Cat and Dizzy’s Club, at J@LC. Though Gibson’s compositions make up the bulk of their music, this eclectic group’s repertoire also runs the gamut with arrangements of material from Dr. Billy Taylor to George Harrison.

David is busy performing with and composing for many diverse artists in New York City, including Roy Hargrove, Orrin Evans, and George Gee, in addition to teaching at the New School University and Columbia University. Legendary trombonist/composer Slide Hampton says, “David Gibson is one of the very talented, truly dedicated musicians on the New York scene today.”
