Jimmy Greene Quartet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

Saxophonist Jimmy Greene, wrote Jim Macnie in the Village Voice, “is good for a couple of body chills every time you see him. He's got a big barrelhouse sound, and a way of negotiating changes that make academic moves seem natural.” One of the most admired and respected horn men of his generation, Greene has released a series of high–quality solo albums on such labels as RCA Victor, CrissCross, and NuJazz. In addition to his re­cordings and appearances as a leader, Greene has performed as a sideman on some 75 albums, recording and/or touring with Horace Silver, Freddie Hubbard, Harry Connick, Jr., Kenny Barron, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, just to name a few. He is joined on this special engagement by the ever-exciting Renee Rosnes on piano and bassist John Patitucci, favored choice of such musicians as Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, and Stan Getz. Don’t miss this all-star band at Jazz Standard.
