+ Allstar Show on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 9:00 pm

One of the biggest stars of R&B, contemporary, straight-ahead and smooth jazz, Gerald Albright has earned his reputation as a “musician’s musician.” Born in Los Angeles, he began piano lessons at an early age. Later, he learned to play saxophone and also switched to bass guitar for some time. During the ’80s, Albright became a highly requested session musician, toured with artists like Quincy Jones and Whitney Houston and also went on to record successful solo albums. After two of these hit number one on Billboard’s Top Contemporary Jazz Chart and earned him his first Grammy nominations (1989, 1990), Phil Collins asked him to front a Big Band and they toured together. He also performed and toured Jeff Lorber, George Duke, Earl Klugh, Will Downing, Jonathan Butler and Chaka Khan, among many others. Over the years, Albright has appeared on numerous TV shows, has sold over a million albums in the U.S. alone and has appeared on nearly 200 albums by other artists. Along the way, five more Grammy nominations followed: “New Beginnings”, “Sax for Stax”, “Pushing the Envelope”, “24/7” and “Slam Dunk”.
