Jazz at the Dance Hall: The Greg Abate Quintet

The Dance Hall, Kittery, Maine
7 Walker St
Kittery, ME 03904

Greg Abate is a jazz saxophonist, flutist, and composer and continues as an international jazz/recording artist with 225 days a year touring the globe.

“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

“Multi-saxophonist Greg Abate is a prime example of the rear back and blow school of contemporary bop-based players. The tunes he writes or chooses are based on the kinds of changes that harmony-oriented jazzmen have favored since the beginning and he swings through them with and eager and easy virtuosity.”
David Franklin, Jazz Times
