Richard Gibbs – Just For Me


SKU: The Sirens 5030 Categories: ,


Richard Gibbs is a virtuoso musician who truly can do it all; he adeptly testifies and grooves on the organ, piano, and bass. This recording pays tribute to Richard's mother Inez Andrews and to Aretha Franklin. On many levels, Richard's musical career is inextricably tied to these two music icons. His first professional job was accompanying his mother in New York City when he was 13 years old, and he had twenty-year tenure with Aretha Franklin. Richard has performed the songs on this disc many times in concert with his mother and Miss Franklin. He knows exactly how these classics are meant to be played, how these giants wanted them to be played. On this disc, The Sirens Records honors and shares precious memories of Inez Andrews and Aretha Franklin while focusing on Richard's playing. Richard is a humble man who shies away from the limelight, but The Sirens Records hopes this recording captures his immense talent for posterity and brings him the attention he deserves.
