In 2015, Gideon King & City Blog (GKCB) released a full-length CD, City Blog. The music was met with wide critical acclaim, with the Huffington Post calling King a “musical genius.” Having worked for years in establishing a reputation as a rising force in the New York Jazz scene, King has worked with John Scofield and members of Steely Dan and many other musical giants.
GKCB is excited to have just released their newest album Upscale Madhouse on October 19, 2018, and the work is even more refined, abstract, and compelling than the first release. The album features John Scofield, Marc Broussard, Grace Weber, Nate Smith, Conrad Sewell, Donny McCaslin, Brendan Fletcher, Sonny Step, James Genus, Elliott Skinner, Luques Curtis, Carolyn Leonhart, Kevin Hays, Donald Edwards, Matt Powell, Willard Dyson, Vivian Sessoms, Roslyn McClure, Mike Rodriguez, Adrian Harpham, Nathan Peck, Kate Kay Es, Bryan Reeder, Seamus Blake, Itai Kriss Music, Alex Sipiagin, Bruce Flowers, Liam Budge, Mike Stephenson and David Kahne. GKCB's latest single "Lady of a Thousand Sorries" out on 1/25.
