O’s Notes: Gil was one of the hottest young guitarists on the scene touring with Blood Sweat and Tears in 2001 when tragedy struck. He hand was severely injured in an assault. He had reconstructive surgery and after years of practice and therapy he has reemerged with even greater prowess on his instrument. Strength is his first new release and there is no need for pity here! Parris can still play and he performs a variety of contemporary jazz styles over ten selections including “The Duck Walk” with guest artist Randy Brecker (t). Bonus: Get his live DVD free with the purchase of the CD! Gil is back! He’s performing, teaching and recording to new standards,
