Slim Gambill’s own career as a contemporary jazz/rock artist launched in 2018 during some down time in his Lady A schedule. What started as “writing a few tunes for a jazz festival I was invited to play at,” became a full realized album debut, Fake Jazz & Theme Songs, accompanied by shows at some highly regarded venues ranging from Birdland in New York City to The Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis. Writeups on Slim’s project began to pop up in Billboard, Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Guitar Player, Jazziz. . .just to name a few, and the fuse was lit. A powerful live performer, Gambill’s shows twist and turn, covering everything from vintage smooth jazz to full on classic rock, and everything in between.
