Quintin Gerard W.
The Fnkysax Player
“When Scott O’Brien from smoothjazz.com dubbed Quintin Gerard
W. “a smooth jazz star”, he got the “star” part right, but “smooth” is
only one part of the equation for this romantic and highly rhythmic
player who rightly brands himself “The Fnkysax Player”. In defining
what he does, the versatile composer and performer mentions
elements of funk, R&B, gospel, blues and jazz, and all these textures
are wonderfully and amply represented on his latest album Before
It’s Gone. – Jonathan Widran, Jazziz, All Music
My Jazz Story
I love jazz because..."It changes everyday...!"
I was first exposed to jazz..."By listening to the radio on a Sunday Afternoon."
I met [Kenny Garrett]..."On a street corner outside a Jazz Club in L.A."
The best show I ever attended was..."Miles Davis Live at the Hollywood Bowl!"
The first jazz record I bought was..."Catching The Sun by: Spyro Gyra"
My advice to new listeners..."Don't close your mind, listen to all genres of Music!"
Finally..."Don't 'sell out' your Creativity for a buck...! Stay TRUE and stay REAL in whatever sound you make or produce!!!!" - Quintin Gerard W.
