In 1989 Quintin Gerard W. moved to Los Angeles, California where he met and played with many of the top names in "Smooth Jazz." "I just always wanted to be around and among the best musicians possible, so that I could feed off of the competition and really learn how to play this music."

Quintin Gerard W.'s other Saxophone friends include Jay Beckentstein (Spyro Gyra), Jeff Kashiwa (The Rippingtons), and Kirk Whalum. As a member of the San Diego based Fusion Jazz group "Under The Lake," Quintin Gerard W. had the opportunity to open for Joe Sample at the Maui Cultural and Performing Arts Center in Hawaii, and Stanley Jordan at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, California.

Quintin Gerard W. has recorded with Charlie Wilson (The Gap Band's "Testimony" CD), and the late Rick James.

Quintin Gerard W. recorded on the made for T.V. movie "Here Comes The Munsters" Halloween special produced by Michael Skloff (Producer of the hit television show "Friends" soundtrack!)

Pila Adur - Kaneohe Hawaii

GET THIS CD! You will not be dissappointed!
This CD is nothing short of fantastic! I played this CD and almost didn't want to play the others I ordered from CD-BABY. If you like Paul Taylor you will absolutely love this guy! His sound is very smooth and eloquent and also urban with just the right amount of funk. Songs like "Smooth Jazz Flavor" and "Opportunity" do just that. "Now and Forever" is very well mixed and flows like a honey, sweet and slow... And these are just a few of the tracks. I could write about this CD all day! This is definite driving music to the max baby! This CD blends well here in Hawaii! I have been playing it for all my friends so expect more orders from Hawaii CD-Baby! Quintin: kudos my friend! You have done a wonderful job! Aloha!

On a couple of cuts, Quintin showed signs of near-genius. However, on most, the music was border-line R&B, and had a somewhat stale 70's feel. Not enough Sanborn/Alfonso Blackwell, too much early Earth, Wind, Fire/Barry White. I'd recommend selected cuts, but not the whole CD
