Greg Osby | Back

Born and raised in St Louis, saxophonist Greg Osby began his professional music career at the age of 15, working in blues and jazz groups, but continued to study first in Washington and then Boston, before moving to New York in 1983.

He quickly became an in demand sidesman for such notables as Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillispie and Andrew Hill, and in 1985 became a member of Jack DeJohnette's innovative group 'Special Edition', where he was encouraged to follow his own musical ideas, allowing him to develop into a distinctive artist. Within a few years he was signed to the Blue Notel label, releasing a string of acclaimed albums. Since 2008 he has run his own 'Inner Circle' label, and continues to perform superbly both as leader and as sidesman in other bands.
