After recording with Graham Collier, John Dankworth, Kenny Wheeler and Mike Westbrook in the late 1960s, he released his first album Michael Gibbs in 1970. His orchestras were important stages in the careers of various fusion musicians, and his arranging, conducting and producing work was well appreciated (see discography.) He is known for collaborations with Gary Burton, his student, and for his ability to utilize rock elements in orchestral jazz. He also taught at Berklee for much of the 1970s.
