On the eve of the 53rd Annual GRAMMYS, Smooth Jazz Magazine got to sit down with 5-time GRAMMY nominated Gerald Albright before going on stage with the "Guitar and Saxes" Valentine's Day show here in beautiful Long Beach, CA., at their Performing Arts Center.
The Los Angeles native, now residing outside of Denver CO., graciously invited me to his dressing room for this interview since it was noisy during the band sound check. Sharing the stage with three other artists who would be top billing on their own, Guitars and Saxes also include fellow saxman Kirk Whalum, Guitarist Jeff Golub and Peter White.
Fresh off the Las Vegas show last night, Gerald talked about his appreciation of being nominated for the GRAMMYS as well as talking about the artists who inspired him to get on this path and other special projects he is currently working on and future plans for 2011.
