The Gerry Gibbs Thrasher Dream Trio, We’re Back, and Live In Studio all feature jazz luminaries RON CARTER & KENNY BARRON. In 2014 and 2015, all three trio recordings topped the national JazzWeek® radio charts, spending 15 weeks between the three CD’s at the #1 spot. The first one, Gerry Gibbs Thrasher Dream Trio, received a GRAMMY Nomination in 2014.
For the latest Thrasher Dream Trio recording, Gibbs decided to go for a completely unorthodox concept. Entitled “Thrasher Dream Trio Live in Studio”, the CD once again features rhythm section titans Ron Carter & Kenny Barron throughout, while this time his guests include renowned trumpeter ROY HARGROVE and award-winning vocalist CASSANDRA WILSON. In November 2015 The Gerry Gibbs and his “Thrasher Dream Trio” has once again returned to #! on the Jazzweek Jazz Charts as the most played Jazz CD across the country for 2 straight weeks. This would be their third #1 CD in a row in less than two years for 15 weeks total.Since the first jazz radio charts started being documented going back 14 years to 2002, only two other artist in 14 years have had three or more #1 consecutive CD’s in a row.
