Vibist and bandleader Terry Gibbs: "The Terry Gibbs Dream Band- Main Stem"

This great band played only in the Los Angeles area yet it gained international fame because vibist/leader Terry Gibbs was astute enough to record the band's infrequent gigs and record them well with the genius engineer Wally Heider. The band consisted of the cream of the crop of Jazz playing Hollywood musicians. These were men who loved playing Jazz but also made a great living doing studio/movie/TV work. Players like alto saxophonists Joe Maini and Charlie Kennedy and tenorists Richie Kamuca and Bill Perkins. Trumpeters Al Porcino in the lead and soloists Conte Candoli and Stu Williamson. Trombone masters, Frank Rosolino and Vern Friley and the great Mel Lewis on drums to name just a few. Terry Gibbs is the perfect bandleader...outgoing and ebullient. Gibbs on vibes is the real link between Lionel Hampton and Milt Jackson and his fine solos are heard throughout the set. The band's arrangers are Shorty Rogers, Al Cohn, Manny Albam and Bill Holman. "Main Stem" is the name of the album and the band is the one and only Terry Gibbs Dream Band recorded at "The Summit" in January of 1961. Terry just celebrated his 90th birthday on October 13, 2014!
