Greg Abate (Saxes and Flute) / Paul Edis (Keyboards) / Andy Champion (Bass) / Russ Morgan (Drums)

Greg Abate jazz saxophonist, flutist, composer continues as an International Jazz / Recording Artist with 225 days a year touring the globe. In the mid 70’s after finishing a four year program at Berklee College Of Music, Greg played lead alto for the Ray Charles Orchestra for 2 years.
In 1978 Greg formed his group Channel One which was a favourite in the New England area and from there had the opportunity to play tenor sax with the revived Artie Shaw Orchestra under leadership of Dick Johnson from 1986 to ’87. Following this experience Greg ventured out as post hard bop soloist playing Jazz Festivals, Jazz Societies and Jazz Clubs throughout the U.S. Canada and abroad, including most of Europe, UK, and Moscow and Georgia Russia.

It's great to see Greg return to Newcastle to perform with Paul Edis and the first call rhythm section featuring Andy Champion and Russ Morgan. Previous Jazz North East concerts with Greg have sold out so advance booking is recommended!

"Greg Abate is an absolute powerhouse who will absolutely not let hard driving bebop die.
One of the most exciting players around today, Greg’s commitment to the music is total…" – W. Pickowitz, Jr. (The Jazz Messenger)
