Saxophonist Greg Abate brings his stellar band to the Narrows once again, this time to celebrate his recording of the music of jazz icon Kenny Barron. Greg’s well-crafted arrangements of Barron’s music have resulted in having the #1 CD on the National JazzRadio Chart for several weeks in a row, and the print reviews have consistently pronounced it one of the best of the year.
Pianist Tim Ray is music director and pianist for the legendary Tony Bennett, and was touring with Tony until Covid paused the performances. Along with bassist John Lockwood and drummer Mark Walker, Greg and Tim will get a chance for a deep dive and really stretch out on the songs. The evening will be a delight for the well-oiled band as much as for the audience.
