About

A US-based musician of international standing, saxophonist Greg Abate is considered to be amongst the finest jazz players of his generation.

Following that experience he established himself as an international soloist, something he has now been successfully doing for the last 25 years working throughout the US, Canada, UK, Western and Eastern Europe and Russia. As well as his touring work, Greg is also a composer, arranger, a Grammy-nominated recording artist and educator of some considerable note, serving as an adjunct professor of Jazz Studies at Rhode Island College as well as a very active jazz clinician.
