When you combine such great musicianship with a strong respect for lyric and melody, the result is a young performer of surprising maturity. His talent will satisfy the most discerning among music lovers. For Gary’s first commercial recording, SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT, he chose some well loved tunes including Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh’s The Best Is Yet To Come, and Delores Vickie Silvers’ Learnin the Blues.
