RI-based Greg Abate is known the world over as a master of the alto saxophone and a hard core bebopper, but he does much more. He is also proficient on the soprano, tenor and baritone saxes, as well as the flute. He is also a respected composer; some of his 17 CDs consist of only his own songs, while others feature standards along with his own pieces.
Greg is one of a diminishing number of jazz artists who travel the world non-stop, often more than 225 days a year, performing in clubs and at festivals, giving clinics at schools and colleges and regularly releasing highly regarded and reviewed recordings which make the top 20 on the JazzWeek national radio chart. In 2016 he was inducted into the RI Music Hall of Fame.
