BIOGRAPHY

Mel GAYNOR  (born 29 May 1960 in Balham, London, UK) became famous with SIMPLE MINDS. 


He was, and still is, one of the main components of the famous scottish band. The drummer also played with the greatest stars of the popular music scene: let's name Elton JOHN, Lou REED, Tina TURNER, Peter GABRIEL, THE PRETENDERS, Gary MOORE or Brian MAY, amongst many more. However, this hitmaker profile would surely not be enough to sum him up. Amongst his influences are rock artists such as THE ROLLING STONES, LED ZEPPELIN or Jimi HENDRIX, James BROWN for the funky side, and THE MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA for the experimentation in jazz. Not to mention his caribbean heritage... 


All of these elements are present in Mel GAYNOR's new project, launched in the year 2017 with the help of keyboards player Stéphane DERIAU-REINE. 

Eleven years before, the British drummer gave a hand to his French friend in THE FUSION PROJECT, so it seemed obvious to help him in return today. "Got The Message" (Great Winds, 2017) opens like it has been recorded during the Eighties for the renowned G.R.P. label: the tone is set, and it definitely jazz ! 


It's a bit like the golden days of jazz-rock fusion are back, that time when SPYRO GYRA, David SANBORN or UZEB ruled the stage. Nicolas BAUDINO's saxophone and Alvin MILLS's slapping are certainly no stranger to this feeling. The new album contains 8 instrumental tracks, elegant all the way, sometimes adventurous, always sunny. A real treat for the most demanding ears. Let's also note an amazing cover version of Herbie HANCOCK's "Maiden Voyage", an endless journey filled with precious melodies. 


Don't hesitate, this new album is a must-have. "Got The Message" ??
