Composer Tobias Gebb releases new recordings to add to the collection of holiday songs by his band Trio West. This time the trio backs up vocalist Champian Fulton on two new original Christmas songs. The song ‘Christmas Imagination’ also features tenor saxophonist Ron Blake and is reminiscent of the infamous recording ‘Gets and Gilberto’ which features the well-known standard Girl From Ipanema.
Tobias Gebb’s new release ‘Troubled Times’ features guitarist Larry Miller in a dark alternative rock setting. The song touches on the troubling times we are living in and wonders if the human race can get their act together or fade away.
The series will premier on HBO in the fall of 2010. Tobias will be playing a 1920’s dixieland drummer. He appears in the scenes depicting the lavish parties at a club called “Babette’s” on the night of President Warren Harding’s election.
The number one jazz station in America, WBGO, invited Tobias Gebb to do a 1 hour interview with the infamous jazz disc jockey Gary Walker. They featured new music from the latest release ‘Tobias Gebb and Unit 7 – Free At Last’ and discussed Tobias’s life growing up in New York City.
