Born: July 27, 1953
PT Gazell’s first release, “Pace Yourself”, (featuring Jerry Douglas and Ricky Skaggs as sidemen) set the gold standard for diatonic harmonica playing. This blast of sonic bluegrass was and is, ahead of its time.
His innovative work with the West Texas Music Company, (Johnny Paycheck's working band) from 1977 to 1980 opened up new musical possibilities for PT. His ability as a soloist and as an ensemble member of the band garnered him both critical and popular acclaim and made him one of the most sought after session players in the country.
With his new CD, “Swingin’ Easy…Hittin' Hard”, PT once again sets a standard for others to follow. Combining elements of Jazz, Swing, and Pop Standards PT Gazell has produced a classic American Recording that will keep your toes tappin’, your head boppin’ and your smile firmly in place....
