Best Improvised Jazz Solo
“Kick Those Feet”
Kenny Barron, soloist
Track from: Songs From My Father
(Gerry Gibbs Thrasher Dream Trios)
Whaling City Sound is pleased and honored to have Kenny Barron nominated for best jazz solo by the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs, for his playing on the Terry Gibbs composition “Kick Those Feet” from our Songs From My Father release.
Drummer Gerry Gibbs put together a remarkable 2 CD set of his Dad Terry’s songs and somehow captured 4 trios of stellar keyboard and bass players during the pandemic.
The Whaling City team thanks Kenny, Gerry, Terry, and the other jazz luminaries who went above and beyond to produce two hours of some of the finest music recorded in the last year. Kudos to the voters and the Academy for recognizing this remarkable effort.
