From the USA the multi saxophonist, known as The Prince of BeBop is in town
Greg Abate is a jazz saxophonist, flautist and composer who usually tours the globe over 200 days every year. We are lucky to have this international artist revisiting Wakefield for one of those days!
Known for his sincere passion and energy in playing, this graduate of Berklee and veteran of the Ray Charles Orchestra is a straight ahead real jazz player. This evening he meets our very own Pete Rosser with his piano trio.
“High-energy jazz doesn’t describe the full feeling of listening to hard bop saxophonist Greg Abate in live performance because so much intensity and idea-making fuels his music. But it comes close.” – Ken Franckling’s Jazz Notes
