|"One of the few people writing progressive music for the pan and sounding original..." - Andy Narell|
"...fresh, innovative sounds...Gary Gibson is a master of the steel drums & vibraphone and puts them to excellent use..." - JazzReview.com
"Gibson's soloing is melodic and self-assured, and his compositions are sophisticated and totally enjoyable..." - Percussive Notes Magazine
compositions are highly creative, challenging, and by no means are they
predictable. The steelpan world is blessed to have an ambassador like
Mr. Gibson who, obviously, is doing his utmost to promote the steelpan
in a progressive direction." - Liam Teague
"Great solo!!!" - Jamie Abersold
