Gary Husband: Hotwired


First new group project by multi-instrumentalist and composer Gary Husband (John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, Allan Holdsworth, Jack Bruce, Robin Trower) since the resoundingly successful, highly acclaimed Gary Husband’s Force Majeure group (featuring Randy Brecker, Jerry Goodman, Elliot Mason, Jim Beard, Matt Garrison and Arto Tuncboyaciyan) who toured in the UK via Contemporary Music Network (Arts Council) organisation and BBC Radio 3’s Jazz on 3 commisions both in 2004 and 2005.

Evoking Duke Ellington through to Miles Davis and Mahavishnu, and after a series of 4 piano or keyboard based solo offerings Gary Husband’s Drive sees Gary back in the drum chair featuring electrifying new contemporary jazz originals and reworkings of standards such as Paul Desmond’s Take 5 and a Level 42 hit Heaven In My Hands, (which, incidentally, Gary plays on as a session drummer back in 1988).
