He has performed at festivals in the UK and Europe and has played with many top musicians such as Alan Barnes, John Dankworth and Roy Williams. Currently Gary plays trumpet with Tad Newton’s Jazz Friends and runs his own successful quartet. Recently he released his debut CD ‘Evening Standards’ and joined Richard Leach’s “7 Stars of Jazz” at the beginning of 2015.
