Behn Gillece

“Gillece is a skillful creator of tunes, harkening back to the original hard bop days and beyond, without sounding like mere imitations of that era's classics.” Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz

After a decade on the New York jazz scene, vibraphonist Behn Gillece has built a reputation as a virtuosic instrumentalist and prolific composer. Dare To Be, his second album as leader is scheduled for release in August on the Posi- tone Label. It features a stellar quartet with Nate Radley on guitar, Ugonna Okegwo on bass, Jason Tiemann on drums, and special guest trumpeter Bruce Harris for a few selected numbers. His debut album Mindset, showcasing complex and brooding original compositions, received excellent reviews in reputable jazz periodicals such as Downbeat and Jazziz. It also rose to the top 20 on the Jazzweek radio charts for several weeks, and made the top 50 for 2015.
