Best known as a member of M People. So in the early part of the decade, while I was playing for other leaders, I reflected the more traditional approach to jazz improvisation.
But as I transitioned to leading my own bands, I intentionally looked for a new identity and a niche in the jazz world that I could make my own. GB: George Shearing was looking for a mellow smooth sound when he formed his first band in the States in the late s. It was the complete opposite of the typical bebop horn-dominated bands that were the norm at the time. The famous Shearing sound featured the most mellow of instruments playing in unison: vibraphone, electric guitar and piano. GB: Stan Getz was the classic example of what is now called bi-polar disorder.
He rocketed back and forth between being the sweetest, nicest guy on the planet to being paranoid and suspicious and angry at everyone around him. At heart, he was a very lyrical player who loved making music as beautiful as possible. Those were the times I remember fondly. He treated me like I was his son he was 41 at the time and I was 21 , and he was very protective toward me. But I often saw him be rude and even mean to others around him.
