Gary Husband

Primary Instrument: Drums

Born: June 14, 1960    

Gary Husband is one of a rare breed of musicians in that his expression is divided equally in his capacity as a drummer and a keyboardist of international repute. His classical roots, his quest and development in the improvisational, jazz and jazz/fusion areas - not to mention his tenure in the pop, rock, funk and blues circuits - are all evident inside Gary's distinct and far-reaching musical personality. His solo album and DVD output over the last few years has also reinforced his status as a critically acclaimed writer and arranger in the contemporary music world.

In 1999 he formed Gary Husband New Trio (with Mick Hutton, bass, and drummer Gene Calderazzo) leading from the piano and keyboards. Material from this period is best represented on the album Aspire - Gary Husband & Friends (Jazzizit). In the summer of 2003, Gary was awarded a highly coveted place on the Arts Council of England's Contemporary Music Network touring scheme to lead a hand-picked ensemble of world-class jazz musicians on a tour across the UK in March 2004. The project, entitled Gary Husband's Force Majeure, featured Grammy winning trumpeter Randy Brecker, bassist Matthew Garrison, keyboardist Jim Beard, trombonist and bass trumpeter Elliot Mason, Mahavishnu legend Jerry Goodman on electric violin, and the Armenian 'world' percussionist Arto Tuncboyaciyan. Gary composed, arranged and directed the band from the drum kit and piano, presenting a series of “evocations” inspired by musical pioneers such as Bjork, Burt Bacharach and John McLaughlin, and the BBC Radio 3 commissioned suite (Stone Souls). To coincide with the release of the group's highly-acclaimed 2-disk 5.1 Surround DVD package, the ensemble returned to the UK in March 2005 for a further series of concerts which included a wildly-received, sell-out week residency at London's Ronnie Scott's club....

GARY HUSBAND & ALEX MACHACEK * NOW (Abstract Logix)

“Gary Husband and Alex Machacek have co-created an amazing piece of modern music which goes beyond categories with “Now”. The compositions and forms that they have made to expand and improvise with are adventurous and magical. The duet is an orchestra unto itself and the players are obviously very comfortable within each others’ universes. They have taken good care of the sonics of the recording as well with a wonderfully rich sound and perfect mix. Congratulations my friends!” CHICK COREA – 2013

—————————————————————————————— “A musician whom I have known and admired for many years, not only for his wizardry at the piano, but also for his artistry at the drums! Gary is no ordinary musician: full of invention and surprises, modulations and inversions of melodic, harmonic and rhythmic content abound...
