Chris Greene Quartet / Press

“Thusly, Chris Greene might be in commend of the proceedings on this live document, but the other three cats in his quartet are hardly passive sidemen either, in carrying out the mission of playing jazz for people who only think they don’t like jazz. It truly is…a group effort.”

"...a post-bop maverick intent on shaking things up for the mainstream."

“…an almost impossibly nimble sax player…”

“Greene continues to evolve as one of the best young players in the city...”

“...a stupid-funky tenor and soprano player who kills..”

“...a saxophonist highly deserving of your attention.”

“..plays with the sonic determination of a commuter train forging through a snow storm or a pizza delivery guy going out into the night chasing a tip knowing full well he will probably be robbed but doesn't let that stand in his way.”

“The Chris Greene Quartet, led by tenor + soprano saxophonist Chris Greene, continues to bring tight, high-end musicianship combined with a floetic mastery of good song structure...these guys are serious players.”

“…an almost impossibly nimble sax player…””

“Greene...provides twists and turns...cleanly phrased ideas, which are fun to follow...manages to mix it up, finding the appropriate sound for each selection by employing a varied set of saxes to nicely accomodate the needed mood shifts.”

"The funkiest brother on the planet. Maceo [Parker] better watch out."

“…rivals some of what is played on contemporary jazz music stations across the United States...a formidable band.”

“...Greene's most enjoyable effort yet. The quartet is as cohesive as they were on Volume One, and the soloing is more striking, with Greene in particular pulling out strings of melody as if he were a magician tugging on one of those endless hankerchiefs...”

“...amazing young talent…Chris Greene has sold me on his ability and his drive to be one of the best of all time. Hell, you can hear him learning with each note.”

“Greene has some set of chops…Keep an eye on this kid…”
