Upbeat and swinging are the best words to describe the musical energy of David Gibson. A finalist of the Thelonious Monk Award, this trombonist also brings his mad skills as a composer/arranger to another level with " A Little Somethin'," his latest CD on Posi-Tone. In addition to Gibson's stunning melodicism and harmonic delights, the program also features the musical and textural stylings of organ sensation Jared Gold, the fierce attack of alto saxophonist Julius Tolentino, and the hard driving swing of drummer Quincy Davis. Unlike so many sessions these days, this lineup is an actual working band from out on the scene today, and as such, the compelling musical message arrives intact by special delivery with greater ingenuity and integrity.
