Greg Abate, jazz saxophonist, flutist and composer continues as an International Jazz/Recording Artist, touring the globe 225 days a year.

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 favorite in the New England area. From there he 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 a post hard bop soloist playing Jazz Festivals, Jazz Societies and Jazz Clubs throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad, including most of Europe, the UK, Moscow and Georgia Russia.

Greg’s newest release, The Greg Abate Quintet, features Phil Woods (Rhombus Records), Jesse Green, Evan Gregor and Bill Goodwin.
