Pianist and composer Gary Farr
has produced and recorded on several different records and
CD's. LOST being
the first jazz CD released but not the first to be recorded.
Gary and his quintet performed and debuted the LOST CD at
Sunfest in Palm Beach Florida back on May 1, 1999. The original
band started recording in 1995. One of Gary's last projects
as producer and musician is the successful smooth jazz CD
"Up All Night" featuring saxophonist Ron
Fattorusso released in 2004. "Movin' Thru LA' was
released in late April 2007.
"As a pianist
I have been inspired by many jazz greats. To name a few; Oscar
Peterson, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Thelonious
Monk. As a composer, I have been influenced by jazz, classical,
pop and film composers from Bach to the Beatles,
from John Coltrane to John Williams. Music has
been in my blood as far back as I remember. I enjoy writing
different styles of music whether I'm playing the music myself
or writing for other musicians. With today's computers and
technology a composer's boundaries are endless. Music writing
continues to be exciting and challenging."
