One of America’s most exciting saxophone players, Greg Abate is recognized and admired by fellow musicians, critics and audiences alike. Combining influences of Phil Woods, Art Pepper, Jackie McLean and Charlie Parker, his style is unmistakably his own. Over his career Abate has been featured at major jazz clubs and festivals across the United States and abroad. He recently won 2nd place in the Downbeat Readers Poll, just behind Kenny Garrett.

Greg Abate has recorded fifteen albums as leader, notably with Richie Cole, Phil Woods and Kenny Barron. His most recent recording, Magic Dance, The Music of Kenny Barron, spent seven straight weeks at No.1 on the JazzWeek radio charts.

A favorite of Taos audiences, Greg will be joined onstage by his favorite New Mexico rhythm section: Pianist John Rangel, bassist Terry Burns and drummer Pete Amahl.

Greg Abate is one of the most appealing saxophonists on the scene today. He is mature with an abundance of gentle self-confidence. The result is that he plays music with sweetness and daring.”  –Jim Merod, New Jazz Recordings”
