Award winning jazz guitarist Gerry Beaudoin ( 1992 NAIRD Award for best jazz recording, 1993 and 1995 Cadence Editors Choice Awards and placement on the Grammy Awards ballot three times in his career for his music) has formed the newest jazz group of his career. After decades of recording and touring the USA and Canada with the likes of rock superstar turned jazz guitarist, J.Geils of the J.Geils Band , blues icon Duke Robillard, saxophonist Harry Allen, jazz guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli and a host of other jazz and blues luminaries, Gerry had to look no further than his own family to put together his latest band with his son Gerard 3rd on vibes. The father –son team is supported by Justin Meyer on bass and Phil Mcgowen on drums. A veteran of over fifty
recordings and thousands of performances through the years, Gerry is very excited
about his new group. “ Gerard, Justin and Phil may be younger than me but they light a
big a fire under my playing and push my music and me to the limits. A combination of
youthful enthusiasm, their superior abilities on their respective instruments and a respect
for my guitar style and the presentation of my music make this a group that I know will
impact the jazz world.”
