With two recent back-to-back GRAMMY® Award Nominations for Best Pop Instrumental Album, (2009 & 2010), Gerald Albright stands in a class all by himself. He is known for his swiftness on stage, his unique round sound which is percussive yet soulful. He has the ability to surprise the audience with something out of the ordinary. Whether he is playing contemporary or straight-ahead jazz, Albright gives his audience what they come for - a great show! Says Albright, “When I look over my history as an artist, I deem myself accessible to my audience. In all of my concerts, I love when the audience is part of my show. It is the greatest compliment to know that my fans are really ‘feeling’ the show as well as ‘watching’ the show. I love signing autographs and meeting people all over the world. I realize that these are the people that support what I do in many areas, and I take that seriously. “
Albright's contemporary and straight-ahead collections have established the Los Angeles-based musician as one of the most prominent artists. Indeed, Albright was one of the ten featured saxophonists who performed at President Clinton’s inauguration. He was also featured at the Presidential Summit, as well as several private functions for the President. Albright had sold over 1,000,000 albums in the U.S. alone. His self-produced music features him on bass guitar, keyboards, flutes, drum programming, and background vocals. Gerald has definitely earned the reputation as the “musician’s musician.”
