Reviews about the artists:
"Gerard''s playing displayed...chops and range...His lived-in feeling for this material was matched by pianist Carl Banner''s stylish, rhythmically scrupulous keyboard work. Two compositions by Gerard...revealed humor and crossover composing skill." Washington Post (9/12/2007)
"With a muted, yet powerful tone and special attention toward phrasing and accent structure, Charley Gerard and Carl Banner opened these ears to a concert repertoire of jazz and dance influenced works with roots in the early twentieth century." https://www.tradebit.com
“Brilliant music by Gerard” Dance Magazine (1976).
“The sound Jenny gets on the tenor might be one of the most very personal of
her generation. A musician of high quality and depth of understanding.”
“He is a sensitive, lyrical saxophonist and flutist who plays with stunning authority.”
Dr. Billy Taylor, pianist
