Funky jazz-rock mixed with bebop from Jazz Fusion guitar legend and ex Isotope bandleader Gary Boyle
With an impressive pedigree as a session player, sideman, band leader and solo artist - having worked with the likes of Dusty Springfield, Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll, Mike Westbrook, Soft Machine, Mike Gibbs, Eberhard Weber, Keith Tippett, Eddie Harris, Bert Jansch, founding 70s fusion group Isotope and 80s trio Triple Echo - veteran (75 this year!) guitarist GARY BOYLE is a master musician well worth re-discovering
In 1973 Gary formed jazz fusion band Isotope who recorded three albums and toured extensively in the UK, Europe and the USA. Albums - ISOTOPE, ILLUSION, DEEP END.
After Isotope disbanded in 1975 Gary recorded several solo albums, THE DANCER & ELECTRIC GLIDE. During this period Gary was voted New Star in the Melody Maker Poll and THE DANCER won the Pop/Jazz Award at Montreux Jazz Festival.
