18 years and over
Chris Greene Quartet returns to Mayne Stage for release of “A Group Effort.” The album was recorded live at Mayne Stage last year.
At a time when jazz continues to seek new audiences, the Chris Greene Quartet sits poised on the future’s cusp. In much the way that classical composers have historically used native folk elements as the basis for their art, the CGQ uses familiar modern materials – the funk and hip-hop he heard growing up – as a bridge between jazz and other genres.
"...a saxophonist highly deserving of your attention." - Neil Tesser, The Examiner
"There's nothing better than listening to music performed by musicians who aren't afraid to take a chance, but who also treat the music with respect. Such is the way of the Chris Greene Quartet." - Bridget Arnwine, Allaboutjazz.com
