Kittyhawk, the second album from Bob Gingery, is out now on Fresh Sound New Talent Records. It features six original compositions as well as music by Thelonious Monk and Pink Floyd performed by the quartet featuring Jon Irabagon, Mike Baggetta and Jeff Hirshfield.

Originally from the San Francisco bay area, Gingery began playing the saxophone at age 10 but the sounds of James Jamerson, Rocco Prestia, and Jaco Pastorius inspired him to pick up the bass guitar. He was soon gigging with local rock bands and playing in his high school's jazz band. At age 18, he began studying the upright bass. Since his arrival to New York in 1999, he has been performing with some of the city's top musicians including Eliot Zigmund, Joe Beck, Buddy Williams, Allan Harris, Ron Affif, Brad Shepik and Lou Volpe. He has played the Blue Note, Birdland, the Hartford International Jazz Festival, Joe's Pub and the Knitting Factory. Maintaining a busy schedule as both a sideman and band leader, he is at home with many styles of music and has performed and recorded with jazz, rock, pop, R&B and Latin artists, musicals and symphony orchestras.

Gingery is also active as an educator. He is a faculty member at Concordia Conservatory in Bronxville, NY and the Brearley School in New York, NY. He holds undergraduate degrees in music from Berklee College of Music and California State University, Chico and a masters degree in music from the City College of New York where he studied with Ron Carter, John Patitucci, and Geri Allen.
