Gibson has released five recordings to date, all critically acclaimed and featuring the steel pan in various musical combinations, with a jazz emphasis. An international, award winning, commissioned composer, he has also created classical works for the steel pan ensemble in combination with both symphony orchestra and choral ensemble.
