September 6 - Grammy Award Winning Saxophonist/Composer - Gary Bias

A native of South Central Los Angeles, Gary Bias began playing the saxophone at the age of eleven. Early on, his musical peers included Gerald Albright, (they met in the seventh grade), along with Patrice Rushen, Ndugu Chancler and trumpeter Ray Brown, all high school pals. 

A highlight in Bias' career occurred when he co-authored the song "Sweet Love" with Anita Baker in 1985. The tune garnered him a Grammy Award for R&B song of the year. By 1987, there was no stopping him as he joined the legendary Earth, Wind and Fire band! Bias has since toured with James Ingram, Randy Crawford and Whitney Houston, to name a few.
