Start Date/Time: Saturday, April 13, 2019 5:00 PM
    2018 "Best Jazz Performer" Chicago Music Award Winner and 2017 Chicago Reader "Best Jazz Band" Winner the Chris Greene Quartet is led by saxophonist and composer Chris Greene

Greene attended the prestigious Indiana University Jazz Studies program and studied with renowned professor and cellist David Baker.  As a performer, Greene has performed or recorded with the following artists: Common, The Temptations, Eric Roberson, Ed Motta, Steve Coleman & Five Elements, Maysa Leak, Ten City, Sheena Easton, Steve Cole, Michael Manson, Andrew Bird, The J. Davis Trio, Typhanie Monique, , Chris Rob, Vic Lavender, Jesse De La Pena, Liquid Soul and The Mighty Blue Kings.

In 2005, Greene formed the Chris Greene Quartet, which includes pianist Damian Espinosa, bassist Marc Piane, and (since 2011) drummer Steve Corley. Described by AllAboutJazz as “a post-bop maverick intent on shaking things up for the mainstream,” the saxophonist has been committed from the get-go to the pleasure principle. Whether the group is hugging tradition or engaging in experimentation, it radiates a deep sense of well-being.

The Chris Greene Quartet has released eight albums, including three volumes in its live Playtime mixtape series, the latest of which was released in December 2016. With each release, Greene has moved steadily from funk mildly seasoned with jazz to uncompromising jazz boasting subtle funk touches.
