Gerry Hemingway


Gerry Hemingway, Composer, Percussionist, Singer-Songwriter, Visual Artist, Educator, has been a widely acknowledged contributor to the continuum of creative music for the past five decades. He was born in 1955 in New Haven, Connecticut to a family with musical interests (his grandmother had been a concert pianist and his father studied composition with Paul Hindemith). He became interested in drums around the age of ten and by the age of seventeen was supporting himself as a professional musician primarily in the jazz and bebop traditions. In the 1970's, New Haven was home for a number of interesting musicians. This was where Gerry first met and played with Anthony Davis, Wadada Leo Smith, George Lewis and Anthony Braxton. In the late 1970's, Hemingway, trombonist Ray Anderson, and bassist Mark Helias formed a collective trio which they eventually named BassDrumBone. In celebration of their 40th anniversary in 2017, the group released “The Long Road” with special guests Joe Lovano and Jason Moran.

Rodrigo Amado / The Bridge: Beyond The Margins

Read "Beyond The Margins" reviewed by Mark Corroto

You might think saxophonist Rodrigo Amado's quartet The Bridge is an allusion to Sonny Rollins' performing and recording hiatus between 1959 and 1961. One spent practicing on the Williamsburg Bridge which links Manhattan and Brooklyn. Besides the name, Amado's previous release, Refraction Solo Live At Church Of The Holy Ghost (Trost, 2022), his first unaccompanied recording, ...

Izumi Kimura & Gerry Hemingway: Kairos

Read "Kairos" reviewed by Ian Patterson

In ancient Greek kairos means the right time for action. The word relates both to archery and weaving. It is an apt title for pianist Izumi Kimura and drummer/percussionist Gerry Hemingway's debut duo album, as in-the-moment intent, precision and intricacy course through their dialogues. No strangers to one another, they first played as duo in 2016, ...
