Greg Gisbert - Trumpet
Fiery, honest, and maniacally talented, Greg Gisbert hit the national jazz scene at an early age and seems to have been on the road ever since. He ventured forth from his childhood home in Denver to attend Berklee, but soon found himself wandering around a tour bus dodging insults from Buddy Rich. He eventually settled in New York, and over the years has been an integral player with the Woody Herman Orchestra, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Horace Silver, Maynard Ferguson, Bobby Shew, Maria Schneider, John Fedchok, and the Smithsonian, Carnegie Hall , and Vanguard Big Bands. In addition to also recording with most of these groups, Greg also has three CD’s out as a leader on the Criss Cross label, with such notable sidemen as Billy Drummond, Chris Potter, and Gregory Hutchinson.

They achieve a groove sought by many, but not easily found... --Ira Gitler
“Convergence is phenomenal. It's a rare treat to hear a small group play compositions and arrangements that are so rich in ideas and formal development. Their pieces are wonderfully original and leave beautiful space to feature every musician in a unique way, and each musician is truly unique and extraordinary. I can't say enough about this group.”
“Folks, it just doesn't get better than THIS! Convergence should be known world-wide. I'm gonna do all I can to help that happen.”
...their performances are marked by a genuine sense of unity.
--Linda Gruno, Westword
