Bassist Gerald Veasley is well regarded as a composer, producer, artist, and educator. His varied musical career has allowed him to reach out to an ever growing legion of fans. Gerald has been appreciated by fans and fellow musicians alike for his virtuosity yet soulful approach to music making. Meanwhile, critics have also noticed this six string bassist’s work. He’s been voted “Best Electric Bassist” by Jazziz Magazine and named in both Downbeat Magazine’s Critic’s and Reader’s Polls.
Collaboration has been an important feature of Gerald’s musical career. He had a long and fruitful association with Grover Washington, Jr., and Joe Zawinul. He not only toured and recorded with those two masters, but he also contributed songs to their repertoire. Gerald’s also worked with such important jazz artists as: Pat Martino, Special EFX , Pieces of a Dream and the Jaco Pasorius Big Band. His appreciation of all-star collaborations led him to create concert events featuring leading contemporary jazz artists such as Kirk Whalum, Najee, Chuck Loeb, Kim Waters, Maysa, and Bobby Lyle. Though he’s known as a contemporary jazz musician, the versatile bassist has never been content working in one genre. He’s also worked with R&B legend, Gerald Levert, jazz diva, Nnenna Freelon, the soulful Teddy Pendergrass, gospel icons Dixie Hummingbirds, straight ahead piano giant McCoy Tyner and many other diverse artists.
When he isn’t making music or teaching music, Gerald’s reaching out to music lovers in other ways. He’s written articles for Jazz Times and Bass Player magazines. He also reaches jazz fans over the airwaves by hosting a popular radio show on Philadelphia’s WJJZ . Finally, he also serves the music community as a Trustee and Chapter President with the Recording Academy. Clearly, the power of music continues to touch Gerald Veasley and he’s still discovering ways to touch others.
