Gaz first came to wider public attention as the original drummer in the Matthew Halsall Band and featured heavily on the early recordings of the Gondwana label. A particular highlight was recording the album “On The GO”, which won THE BEST JAZZ ALBUM OF THE YEAR – Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards, 2012 and was nominated Best Jazz Album MOBO Awards, 2011. His drumming influences include the school of melodic drummers such as Max Roach, Alan Dawson and Jeff Hamilton. Gaz is specifically inspired by the drummers that are able to spell out form and melody when they improvise.
