Gibbs, Terry (Dream Band and Vibes on Velvet)

Born in Brooklyn in 1924, Terry Gibbs began his professional career at the age of twelve winning the Major Bowes Amateur Hour (one of the most popular radio shows on the air; Frank Sinatra also made his first professional appearance on this program). Gibbs toured with Benny Goodman, Chubby Jackson, Buddy Rich and Woody Herman, becoming a leader himself some years later. In addition, he has composed over 300 songs, 280 of which have been recorded by the likes of Nat King Cole, Woody Herman, George Shearing, Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley, Buddy DeFranco, and many other jazz musicians.

According to Gibbs, when he moved to Los Angeles in 1957, he'd already made an album with a big band that he wasn't very pleased with. He wanted to do a new one, but he wanted the music to be fully rehearsed before the band entered the studio. Unfortunately, the music union did not allow rehearsal for a record date. Gibbs had a gig with his quintet at a club called the Seville. Soon after, Gibbs was allowed to bring in a big band instead of the quintet; the owner paid him the same amount of money. Being that Gibbs was not a local attraction, he would have just enough money to pay everyone local scale ($15), and, as the leader, he would make $11 after paying the bandboy $8. Gibbs appeared on local television shows plugging his appearance, and the night of the show 300 people, famous movie stars as well as musicians, came to the club to hear an all-star ensemble playing top arrangements by Med Flory, Manny Albam, Bill Holman, Al Cohn, Bob Brookmeyer, and Marty Paich. Engineer Wally Heider came down to the various clubs where the band performed and recorded it, resulting in several albums issued almost twenty years later on the Contemporary label. The musicians were the cream of the L.A. scene at the time.
