Gray Matter – FootstepsApril 3, 2015 / No Comments / Tags: Derek Gray, Eli Bennett, Gray Matter, Ingrid Jensen, Justin Gray, Luiz Deniz, Todd Pentney
Footsteps is the debut outing of an immensely enjoyable band from Canada. Gray Matter is the product of brothers Justin and Derek Gray. Justin is the band’s bassist, while Derek holds down the drum chair. Trumpet player Ingrid Jensen, keyboardist Todd Pentney, alto saxophonist Eli Bennett and tenor sax man Luiz Deniz complete the lineup of this very dynamic unit. The group’s sound combines element of jazz, soul, rock, and hip-hop to produce a very connective brand of music in which they jam, groove and swing. The compositions on the album are all incredibly well-written originals that allow for noting the individual and collective talent of the group. A truly fantastic band and production.
