Gene Argel



If a lifetime of soulfulness, joy and good karma could be distilled into a single recording, it would sound exactly like this.
- Tom Stevens, Maui News

A Tacoma native, Gene left the Pacific Northwest in his early 20s to gig in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and points west. The westernmost of those was the Hawaiian island of Maui, Gene's home since 1982. Maui is a hip and lovely place, but it is very small. That Gene has earned a living there for over 30 years playing jazz attests to his talent, versatility and open heartedness.

As both leader and "house pianist" for countless club gigs, Gene backed all the visiting class acts who came through; recording stars Branford Marsalis, Emil Richards, George Benson, Bill Perkins and Steve Gadd; as well as fellow islanders Gabe Baltazar and Henry Allen. Whether on piano, keyboards or his beloved B-3, Gene distils the full quantum of beauty and passion in his performances.
