Gary has been a bassist for a few decades. He learned to play electric bass first and then graduated to standup bass. He plays all types of music from Afro to Zydeco. His influences include the likes of Charles Mingus, Ray Brown, Ron Carter, Charlie Hayden, Jaco Pastorius, and many others. He has worked with E. W. Wainwright, Eddie Moore, Michael White, Eddie Henderson, Lou Rawls, Ray Brown, Jr. to name a few. Gary is always looking for new ways to express how the bass can be used to lift music to creative new levels and still hold down the groove.
