Eddie Gomez is a brilliant bassist whose flexibility and quick reflexes make him an ideal accompanist. He grew up in New York and was with the Newport Festival Youth Band during 1959-1961. After studying at Julliard, Gomez played with Rufus Jones' sextet, Marian McPartland (1964), Paul Bley (1964-1965), Giuseppe Logan, Gerry Mulligan, and Gary McFarland, among others. Gomez came to fame during his long period with the Bill Evans Trio (1966-1977). He has since worked in a countless number of settings, including filling in for Charles Mingus (1978) and with Steps Ahead (1979-1984), Benny Wallace, Joanne Brackeen, Jack DeJohnette, Chick Corea, and in commercial settings as a studio musician. Eddie Gomez has recorded as a leader for Columbia, ProJazz, and Stretch. His new CD Jazz Fiddler on the Roof" (TWINZ Records) will be released this September. Jerry Bock, the original composer of Fiddler on the Roof had this to say about Eddie Gomez.
