on the Leonardo Di Vinci 1978
s 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 and pop composers, from Bach to the Beatles, from John Coltrane to John Williams. Music has been in my blood as far back as I remember."

Back in 1977-78, Gary spent a year performing on the Italian cruise liner Leonardo Da Vinci, it was a 3 and 4 day run from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to Nassau and Freeport Bahamas. In November of 1977 he recorded this album on board the cruise ship playing on an elegant German Steinway grand piano using a 4 track reel to reel tape recorder. The selection of songs are a combination of passengers popular favorites and his own personal taste, thus giving the 'easy listener' pretty melodies; the 'foot tapper', rhythm; the 'sophisticated observer', harmonic structure and 'lovers', emotion.
