Greg Abate + Wakefield Jazz House Trio
Greg AbateOne of the hardest-working jazz soloists on the planet and a firm Wakefield Jazz favourite, New York alto sax-man Greg Abate is touring the UK once more, putting a host of local trios through their bebop paces. Steeped in the tradition, Greg aims to play 225 gigs each year, thriving on riffing with different musicians in different cities every night. This is classic bebop jazz from the source, with Greg providing seemingly endless ideas and streams of creative thought, living and breathing the music.
Tonight’s homegrown trio features our very own Pete Rosser on piano, José Canha on bass and John Settle on drums.
