Soul Kitchen would like to raise one of Mr Woods' glasses to a recent departed soul, whose passing is very unlikely to make much press. MASTER HENRY GIBSON who died in Stockholm 18/12/2002, of a heart attack. Born 9/8/1942. He was an accomplished drummer and percussionist who had made Stockholm his home, where he was a well respected figure on the circuit. He was an unsung soul artist, touring regularly with Curtis Mayfield in the sixties and seventies. He was also a much sought after session musician, playing on many artistsí albums, including Leroy Hutson, Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin, Minnie Riperton, Natalie Cole, Tyrone Davis, Phil Upchurch, Eddie Harris, Donny Hathaway and many more. A remarkable true to life character, that the world was a better place for.
