Gerald carries the knowledge passed on to him by legendary bassists Ray Brown, Sam Jones, Ron Carter and Buster Williams and continues the legacy by conducting master classes throughout the U.S. and Europe. He taught at the Oberlin Conservatory in 2014, the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwaukee, the New School in New York and at Long Island University. He also gave a number of master classes at the University of Wisconsin in Whitewater and Eau Clair, at Emery University in Atlanta, Georgia and at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.  Gerald was also a faculty member of the prestigious Conservatory of Maastricht, Holland.

After leaving Roy Hargrove, Gerald held the bass chair for legendary drummer Elvin Jones until his passing in 2004. Gerald considers his time spent with Mr. Jones a profound period of spiritual and creative growth. Since then, Gerald has worked with jazz heavy-weights Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Pat Martino, Louis Hayes and The Cannonball Legacy, Ernestine Anderson, Carmen Lundy, Abbey Lincoln, Gary Bartz, Joe Lovano, Cyrus Chestnut, Larry Willis, Dr. Eddie Henderson, Steve Turre, Eric Reed, the Dexter Gordon Legacy Ensemble and many other all-star combinations, as well as with his own quartet. He continues to conduct Master Classes around the world and remains the Musical Director for the McCoy Tyner Trio.

Gerald debuted as producer with the CD Mad about the Boy featuring jazz vocalist Jeanne Gies.  This recording includes the vocal rendition of Geralds original composition Peri.

The consummate sideman, Gerald has now stepped out front as a leader with the debut of his self-titled recording GERALD CANNON (Woodneck Records.)  Along with stellar versions of well-loved standards, this recording spotlights Geralds critically acclaimed originals including Little Gs Walk and Jeannes Dream.

Geralds creativity and passion is expressed not only in his music, but also in his painting.  He recently had his first art showing in New York City and hosts exclusive viewings for interested art enthusiasts. A US tour of his paintings paired with musical selections will begin in 2016 and his highly anticipated sophomore album is underway with plans to release later next year.

Like the masters before him, Gerald Cannon has established a fearless, solid groove that distinguishes him as a principal figure in jazz.  He will go down in history as a signature jazz bassist and composer of this century.
