Liner Notes: Gail Storm (piano/vocals, Gail Storm Band)
Long Island Pulse: How does your solo show differ from the ones with a full band?
Gail Storm: It tends to be a bit more on the spontaneous side. On the other hand, working with other musicians always generates different musical thoughts. It’s a journey that always leads to a wide variety of exciting sounds
