Album Notes
"Don't Hold Your Breath" is a CD of original jazz tunes that express the true jazz feeling of improvisation and creativeness. The compositions are interesting, challenging and fulfilling to the listeners ears. It's a CD that you can play over and over again and experience something new every time, yet soothing to the soul to just let it happen. Gary's versatile trumpet playing featured in the ensembles are incredibly executed and his improvisational solos are 2nd to none. Whether it is Gary's intense brass sections or his sensitive flugelhorn ballads, you know why he has been sought after for so many years as a recording artist.
Joining Gary is an all-star cast of who's-who musicians that embellish the CD with amazing creativity. Composer/ Saxophonist Dan Higgins is leading the way with his outstanding compositional skills and brilliant saxophone soloing. Wally Minko, also a fantastic composer and pianist, has paved the audio highway with his artistry and musical genius. Drummers Vinnie Colaiuta, Johnny Friday and John Robinson, are the swing keepers with the bass anchors of Ken Wild, Trey Henry and Brian Bromberg. Andy Martin swings as hard as any trombone player on the planet. The addition of the other horns including trumpeter Wayne Bergeron, Bill Reichenbach and Les Benedict along with Dan Higgins are the perfect addition to complete all the palettes of the arrangements..

Sound to die for
If you into your studio musicians then Gary Grant is one of the greats - no questions. Just listen to American Native to hear his production and playing skills, which result in one of the best grooves you can lay your hands or ears on. This is the most expensive cd I've bought (due to UK import taxes and postage) but a must have if you are into instrumentals and arrangements. Don't hesitate!

A true representation of Gary Grant
Those of us that have had the thrill of playing with Gary will recognize the sound and style of Gary Grant - first track ... this album is a true representation of what the name Gary Grant stands for ... high energy - smooth Jazz lines - kick butt rhythms - sultry ballads - all styles covered by the master are what most trumpet players dream to accomplish and he did all of the horn parts by himself with the help of his buddy Wayne Bergeron on "Tres Gatos Profundos"- multi-tracking as many as 14 parts on three horns with and without mutes for ,as Gary said, "It's all about the color".
