Ray Schulman

Though they never garnered the attention afforded their peers Yes, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, and ELP: FM radio staple Gentle Giant were an equally groundbreaking prog rock collective.

Writer, arranger, singer, multi-instrumentalist (most notably violin) and bassist Ray Shulman, akin to his contemporary Chris Squire, was a dexterous player, melding melodic counter-point and pocket playing based on styles that spanned classical, jazz, and funk abetted with numerous effects.

 Following the band’s split, Ray composed for films, advertising, and produced several artists.
