Greg Abate is a world-renowned jazz saxophonist, flutist, and composer who spends 225 days a year touring the globe.
In the mid ’70s 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 and from there had the opportunity to play tenor sax with the revived Artie Shaw Orchestra under the 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 United States, Canada, and Europe.
