"Have no fear - jazz performance is safely in the hands of a new generation
of players with outstanding chops, grounded in the foundations of the past,
and with new musical expressions to present."
- Stan Pethel, International Trombone Association Quarterly Journal

"Mr. Gibson is one of the better new trombone players in jazz, with good
chops and a glowing sound; more and more he is described as someone to watch on the instrument." - New York Times

The Path To Delphi marks the next step in David Gibson's musical journey
featuring a new crop of original compositions tinged with the essence of
classic 60's era Blue Note recordings and informed by his modern
sensibilities. His horn sings over the lyrical melodies under the steady
support of his able-bodied rhythm section. This recording rekindles Gibson's
lengthy musical relationship with saxophonist Wayne Escoffery and also
features the talents of acclaimed trumpeter Randy Brecker.

"This music represents my very personal search for truth. I have been
humbled by the contributions of all involved in this project and feel this
music is evidence of the cumulative effort of many people. I hope you find
some joy here." - David Gibson

This recording includes nine original compositions by David Gibson. They are
great tunes with interesting melodic lines, solid chord changes, and
tasteful arrangements that are to the point and balanced. All of the tunes
are well stated, the solos are the perfect length, and the musical styles
are varied and never overstated.

"David Gibson is one of the very talented, truly dedicated musicians on the
New York scene today." - Slide Hampton

"Out of all the young players I hear in the music today, David is one of
very few who speaks the language of jazz." - Curtis Fuller

Review of David Gibson - Maya by Mike Rogers in Jazz Review (UK):
Of the Gibson CD I have to be objective, quiet and unbiased - I LOVE IT,
Six good originals by Gibson, one by Sneider and two standards make up 50
minutes of uncompromising, hard swinging bop played by seven terrific
players you never heard of - well, maybe you have heard of Escoffery. Where
have they come from? Sent here from planet jazz fully formed and ready to
blow I suppose...
Please buy this CD...
In case I forgot to say it - I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.
