THE GILMOUR PROJECT is an All-Star Band exploring the music of DAVID GILMOUR's Pink Floyd.
Acclaimed musicians Jeff Pevar (guitar with CSN, David Crosby, Phil Lesh, Ray Charles); Prairie Prince (co founder of The Tubes, & drums with Todd Rundgren, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh); Kasim Sulton (bass with Utopia, Meatloaf & Blue Oyster Cult): Mark Karan (guitar with Bob Weir/Ratdog, The Other Ones, Phil Lesh) & Scott Guberman (keyboards with Phil Lesh) - come together for this heavy, psychedelic lift of audacious & beloved ‘Gilmour-centric’ Pink Floyd songs & rarities from David’s solo catalogue.
A FaceBook follower asks:
‘Why is this band called THE GILMOUR PROJECT? Why is it not called The Water’s Project? Why is it not called The Syd Barrett project?
The songs that compel exploration & improvisation are DAVID’s compositions principally. This does not dismiss iconic contributions of all 5 historic musicians that comprise the Pink Floyd complement.
ALL so called ‘Pink Floyd tributes‘ endeavor to recreate the albums or concerts & there is nothing wrong with simulacra. Some of them are great at that.
THE GILMOUR PROJECT, because it’s comprised of musicians whose background is both prog(ressive) AND improvisational - is the only band since BLUE FLOYD in 2000, endeavoring to take these songs ‘OUT,’ speaking in jazz protocol, without disregarding the cherished classic hooks, licks & musical phrases.
