Greg Abate

Greg Abate, the Bristol-born jazz saxophonist, flutist, and composer, is a highly acclaimed international artist. He is known for his passionate and intense performances, infused with BeBop and sophisticated harmonic chords. Greg is joined by a group of renowned artists for an evening of pure jazz that includes both original compositions and American jazz standards. With his impressive talent, Greg has earned praise from legendary jazzman Phil Woods who said, “I sleep a lot better knowing there are alto players like Greg Abate.” While currently touring in Europe, Greg is excited to bring his music back home to Bristol on August 10th. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the energy and vibe of Greg Abate’s jazz.
