“Gideon King’s picturesque originals form a perfect soundtrack for one’s thoughts and due to their subtlety and richness, they stick in one’s mind long after the CD ends.”

New and beautiful is what happens when a brilliantly talented and soulful singer/songwriter plugs into the sonic current of a funk and fusion guitar player and composer; Kurtz and King have moved beyond genre to make music that matters.

Gideon King 2:14 AM

2:14 AM

Gideon King’s musical journey continues. His new release, 2:14 AM, marks his exploration of structured jazz. Whereas his previous release, Revisiting Spaces, was a contemplative and largely solo move through acoustic fusion, 2:14 AM, is a collaboration amongst four fine musicians. Gideon is joined by legendary fusion guitar player John Scofield, well-known Willard Dyson on drums, and hard groovin bassist Gregory Jones. On this track Gideon plays a nylon string acoustic, a guitar synth, and an electric jazz guitar. Scofield’s funky modernism and quirky tonal manipulations are interwoven into this funk hit.
