The GAV7D project is a Five album masterwork by Johnny Hamil. He likes to say he’d rather do this than compose a symphony as it relates more to his bass musical life. The first album is vocals 15 songs composed by Johnny or collaborated with 27 different KC music scene vocalists. Then the idea was to re-imagine what the album would sound like with different group of V7 musicians. Johnny has always written for his band Mr. Marco’s V7. Many of the early members of the band moved back into town so it was on. The first album Cartoonoirjazz is a instrumental homage to Mancini, Ellington, Mingus, and Monk. Features Johnny’s great composing of Jazz melodies and improvisations with his amazIng band members. The second lineup is Punkfunkpolka which is like if a 90s alternative rock band was driven by accordions and theremins. The third version of the band is Exoticamiddleasternfreejazz and is an homage to Martin Deny, Sun Ra, and oud music. It is a magic romp of both improvisations and compositions. Then we have the solo bass video game music album. This album is both electric and upright playing and is breaking new ground for what the bass can do. An. homage to all the great sound tracks of video game music as well as just Johnny’s unique voice on the instrument.
