Northampton Jazz Workshop features saxophone and flutist Greg Abate


WHAT: Northampton Jazz Workshop features saxophone and flutist Greg Abate
WHEN: Tuesday, October 23rd, 7:30 to 8:30PM followed by an open jazz jam session until 10:30 PM
WHERE: The City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton.

We are really looking forward to playing once again with Rhode Island saxophonist and flutist Greg Abate. He always lights up the stage with hard driving bop, gorgeous ballads and some pretty special flute playing. Here's a quote that says it best:    “Multi-saxophonist Greg Abate is a prime example of the ‘rear back and blow’ school of contemporary bop-based players. The tunes he writes or chooses are based on the kinds of changes that harmony-oriented jazzmen have favored since the beginning and he swings through them with an eager and easy virtuosity.” –David Franklin, Jazz Times
