Today’s freebie comes from bass player Melvin Gibbs, who has been on the cutting edge of funky jazz for 25 years.
Gibbs has recorded and gigged with the likes of Vernon Reid, Bill Frisell, Sonny Sharrock, James Blood Ulmer and Henry Rollins.
One of his current projects is the JFM Trio (with Jeff Parker and Francisco Mora Catlett). If you’re a MySpace member, you can download a JFM track called “Snake’s Fanfare.”
That and other FREE MP3s are available on Gibbs’s MySpace page.
