The Jimmy Greene Quartet LIVE at Smoke!

October 4, 2013

jimmy_greene_02_roma2009Tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene is a towering figure who plays with a spirituality and intensity reminiscent of John Coltrane. Jim Macnie of the Village Voice wrote that Greene is “good for a couple of body chills every time you see him.” Among his credits are over 70 albums as either a leader or a sideman and performances with Jackie McLean, Horace Silver, Freddie Hubbard, Tom Harrell, and Harry Connick, Jr. His impressive quartet will preview his upcoming release “Beautiful Life” which is dedicated and inspired by the life of his daughter Ana Grace. The first set is at 7pm. We will see you at Smoke!

Here’s the line-up;
Jimmy Greene (saxophones) • Renee Rosnes (piano) • John Patitucci (bass) • Jeff “Tain” Watts (drums)
