This album from Gabriel's Original Quintet is the product of a five year long process of music making, writing and performing. The music has been served by and therefore owes a debt of gratitude to a number of individuals who have helped shape it through many live situations. Including Gabriel's late father, Michael.
The CD features tunes by Gabriel, an arrangement of 'You Don't Know What Love Is' and a duet performance of the tune 'Blind Faith' written for Gabriel by his father.
The musicians are:
Sam Walker - Tenor
William Bartlett - Piano/Rhodes
Matt Ridley - Bass
Chris Nickolls - Drums
and Gabriel on Trumpet and Flugelhorn.
“Sunlight” as an album lays Garrick’s soul bare in the wake of his father Michael’s recent passing, the music offering vignettes of thought, faith and hope as he ponders the eternal questions of life and death." - Julian Joseph
