  An Evening With Eddie Gomez
Not many jazz fans would associate bassist Eddie Gomez with the likes of Milli Vanilli and Ashlee Simpson, but he had his own “lip syncing” episode during the Grammy Awards back in the 1970s during his famous stint with Bill Evans' trio.
Gomez treats the audience of several dozen people (who, judging by all the coats, packed into the shop on an inclement night) like an extended musical family while discussing aspects of playing from the most basic concepts to the most nuanced.
Gomez may cover a lot of ground in less than a linear fashion, but his remarks and playing are always interesting and able to keep the attention of viewers until the end.

Eddie Gomez was raised in New York City and spent his younger years studying and performing classical, jazz and popular music.
Eddie's fine bow work is also evident on the theme to "When You Wish Upon A Star," a song which, in lesser hands, might fall prey to sappiness.
For fans of Gomez's work with the Evans trio, who have been put off by the bassists' previous efforts as a leader (which leans toward the fusion side of things), this will be a rewarding listen.

 Eddie Gomez solo
Eddie Gomez is one of my favorite acoustic bass players in all of jazz.
I recall Eddie telling a semi-humorous story about how Miles Davis approached him to join his group for a tour but due to obligations to Evans’ trio he had to turn it down.
Not many people have turned down a gig with Miles but it proved to be the best thing for Eddie because he really made his name with Bill Evans and was such and integral part of the trio both as a soloist and as an accompanist.

 Ground and Sky review - Bill Bruford with Ralph Towner and Eddie Gomez - If Summer Had Its Ghosts
Those who are expecting the jazz-fusion of Bruford's other solo albums might be surprised to find music that sounds closer to the straightforward jazz of Towner's work with Oregon.
Gomez gives a solid performance on bass, and does come to the foreground here and there, but for the most part it's Towner's work that really shines.
Of course, since Bruford has top billing, it's not surprising that he gets one track that is just solo drums ("Some Other Time") and one that is basically an electronic drum piece with just enough keyboard and bass backing to create an eerie atmosphere ("Silent Pool").
