Soothe into the sweet sounds of the Chris Green Quartet from the comfort of your home on Friday, June 26th at 7pm.
“...a hearty tone and sharp wit...a proud descendant of such 60s soul-jazz saxophonists as Gene Ammons and Eddie Harris.” - DownBeat Magazine
“Chris Greene is a Chicago jazz treasure.” - Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune.
The Chris Greene Quartet has been a highly visible part of Chicago’s jazz scene since 2005, and has maintained a stable lineup from the beginning, with the exception of Steve Corley, who has held the drum chair since 2011. Damian Espinosa on piano and keyboards and Marc Piane on acoustic and electric basses have been onboard since the beginning. Unique among Chicago bands, most of whom feature, by necessity, constantly shifting personnel, the CGQ has been able to develop a true group sound and feel, harking back to bands from the classic age of jazz when groups could stay together for long periods of time. While honoring the tradition, the CGQ incorporates elements of funk, hip-hop, rock, pop, the blues and reggae, reflecting their diverse backgrounds.
CGQ was also honored at the 2018 Chicago Music Awards with an award for “Best Jazz Entertainer” and won the “Best Jazz Band” category in the 2017 Chicago Reader “Best of Chicago” Poll.
Join us for an evening of music with WDCB and the sounds of the Chris Green Quartet. You'll be able to watch the performance right at 7pm on June 26th or enjoy it for a later date with a downloadable link.
