Clark Gibson: Counterclock

With Counterclock, Clark Gibson and his band take listeners back to the bebop era. Gibson’s naked saxophone solo on “Embraceable You” brings back nostalgia. His duet with trumpeter Sean Jones on “Boptude” brings back the good old days of Bird & Diz. The trio solo (with Michael Dease on baritone saxophone) is just striking. With contribution of Pat Bianchi (b3 organ), Lewis Nash (drums) and Nick Mancini (vibraphone), this album lifts up my spirit for a long, rainy day at work.
