Abstractlogix talks with me about the new release.
Bassist Gary Willis who co-founded Tribal Tech is undoubtedly one of the most prolific bass players of this generation. For his upcoming record Retro, Gary Willis returns to his jazz roots. His new trio features the incredible Gergo Borlai on drums and the acclaimed Catalan pianist Albert Bover on keyboards.
A mix of vintage Jazz with the energetic twist that Willis always brings as well as a melodic side that has been seen in smaller doses throughout his career. Known for his solo records and co-leading the legendary group Tribal Tech, Willis’ jazz roots can be traced back to the days of playing with Wayne Shorter, Hubert Laws, Joe Diorio and more. I got to interview Willis from his home in Barcelona.
