Weather or Not reviewed as “a high water mark for contemporary jazz” by Midwest Record Entertainment
On February 20th, Midwest Record Entertainment posted the following review of Weather or Not, which is the upcoming Gerry Gibbs & Thrasher People album being released on February 24th:
“WHALING CITY SOUND
GERRY GIBBS & THRASHER PEOPLE/Weather or Not: Gibbs has long convinced us he’s one of the driving wheel/spark plugs of contemporary jazz and here he feels the need to drive the point home on a twofer that is packed to the gills with plenty of stuff to blow your mind.. The disc opens with his new band doing a trio take on Weather Report. The other disc is back to his originals that he’s been keeping in hiding for years. The drummer that knows how to give everyone else some takes it to the next level of the game on this tour de force that’ll simply blow your ears wide open. Not a false note in the bunch, this is a high water mark for contemporary jazz. Hot stuff.”
