Gary Husband: Dirty and Beautiful Vol 1 (Remixed and Remastered Edition with 4 Bonus Cuts)

Gary Husband: Dirty and Beautiful Vol 1 (Remixed and Remastered Edition with 4 Bonus Cuts)

“It’s been a real pleasure to revisit this album, open up all the multitracks and completely remix the material.

You’ll even experience a little more of our (initially quite ab... »

It can also be daunting to present any sort of thematic vision f... »

His unique brand of instrumental jazz-fusion is highlighted by his one-of-a-kind chord voicings, his otherworldly legato technique, and an improvising vocabulary that is wholly his own. Though he’s never attained as much mainstream attention as, say, John McLaughlin, ma... »

It was fall of 1975. I awoke early one Saturday morning and was about to head toward the bathroom. The radio was on; and although I was semi-conscious the tune that was playing grabbed my attention.
