"In 3-Dimensions" Tom Garvin


"In 3-Dimensions" Tom Garvin


Re-Released January 2013


This re-issue is by pianist, composer, arranger Tom Garvin, who not only wrote charts for the Tonight Show band, but also toured and wrote for some of the best of the best, including Carmen McRae, Michael Urbaniak, and Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra.  This album showcases Tom’s three dimensions including big band leader, solo pianist and composer/arranger on four tracks for big band and five tracks on solo piano.  The music ranges from samba to elegant Ellington. Featured musicians include John Heard on bass, Peter Donald on drums, Tom Peterson and Kim Richmond on sax and Gene Goe on trumpet. Tom was instrumental in helping ITI Records establish itself back in 1982.  He was also instrumental in recording alongside other ITI alumni: Ruth Price, Mike Campbell, Mike Stephans and the Seventh Avenue Band, Lou Rovner and Estelle Reiner.  Garvin, the unsung giant that he was, had lent his individuality to many jazzartists, and was a major force in the genre.
