Greg regularly plays in Taos– he loves our town, and has many friends and fans here. His upcoming concert is planned as a Tribute to Richie Cole, the late, great alto saxophonist who performed with Abate to a sold-out Harwood audience in 2018.
In the early 90's, Greg and Richie recorded "Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde– live at Chan's". Among Greg's many other collaborative projects, a standout was his 2016 recording with one of his musical inpirations, Phil Woods. Greg's latest collaboration is with the legendary pianist Kenny Barron. The two musicians recorded their project in September of 2020. The resulting double CD, “Magic Dance–The Music of Kenny Barron” was recently released to critical acclaim and spent seven weeks at #1 on the JazzWeek charts.
Fresh off more than a year of “downtime” due to Covid restrictions, international jazz saxophonist Greg Abate returns to Taos for a long-awaited concert. Joining Greg onstage will be pianist John Rangel, bassist Terry Burns and drummer Pete Amahl.
