Greg Abate | Back
Saxophone & flute

Born in Massachusetts in 1947, saxophonist and flautist Greg Abate has been described as "an absolute powerhouse who will not let hard-driving bebop die". After studying at the Berklee College of Music, he spent two years as lead alto with the Ray Charles Orchestra, and subsequently led his own group Channel One. For the past twenty years he has toured the world, frequently working with local rhythm sections, and unfailingly energising them with his own passionate commitment to a fiercely swinging take on the classic jazz repertoire.
