Terry Gibbs


Perhaps one of the most hyper of most jazzmen (even his ballads are taken mostly increase period), Terry Gibbs is really a consistently exciting and competitive vibraphonist. Being a xylophonist, he gained an amateur competition when he was 12. After spending 3 years within the armed forces during World Battle II, Gibbs performed on 52nd Road, gigged with Tommy Dorsey (1946 and 1948), Chubby Jackson (touring Scandinavia during 1947-1948), Pal Full (1948), Woody Herman’s Second Herd (1948-1949), and Benny Goodman (1950-1952). Gibbs resolved in LA in 1957, proved helpful within the studios, led jazz orchestras (his past due-’50s edition was known as the Terry Gibbs Wish Music group), was the musical movie director from the Steve Allen Present through the 1960s, and in the 1980s and ’90s he teamed up within a quintet with Pal DeFranco. Gibbs — who documented as a head for Prestige, Savoy, Brunswick, EmArcy, Mercury, Verve, Period, Impulse, Dot, Xanadu, Jazz a La Carte, and Modern (amongst others) — acquired such great pianists as his sidemen over time as Terry Pollard, Pete Jolly (on accordion in 1957), Alice McLeod (in 1963 before she became Alice Coltrane), and John Campbell.
