Two For Tuesday: Gerald Albright

Saxophonist Gerald Albright grew up in Los Angeles. He started with piano lessons, but when his teacher realized he really didn’t care for it, he gave Gerald a saxophone. After getting his degree in Business Administration from the University of Redlands, he switched to bass guitar for a while. He started as a session player in the ’80’s and appeared with Anita Baker, Ray Parker Jr., Olivia Newton-John and The Temptations before joining a band started by Patrice Rushen, playing saxophone. His bass skills came in handy when, while on tour, the band’s bass player suddenly quit. (Musicians, it never hurts to know more than one instrument.) He’s recorded seventeen studio albums, the latest being 30 released in May of this year, and a live album.

“Groovology” is the title track from his 2002 album.

“Bermuda Nights” is the title track from his second album, released in 1988.

Gerald has a signature line of saxophones built by Cannonball Music. Of course, he has a website and is active on social media. The website tells us he’ll be in Austin, Texas this Saturday and in Buffalo, New York on December 14.

    1. There’s a ton of smooth jazz on the Internet. Accuradio.com has all different kinds of jazz, including five or six smooth jazz channels. Others are SmoothJazz247.com, 101SmoothJazz.com, and SmoothJazz.com. The first two have apps for your smart device, and there are a bunch more. That should put plenty in your life… 😉
