About the Event

Chris Greene - saxophones Damian Espinosa - piano, keyboards Marc Piane - bass Steve Corley - drums, percussion 

“Over  the course of a dozen or so releases and more than two decades of  professional musicianship, Greene has developed into a superb bandleader, improviser, and composer. His pieces are intricately crafted from a  wide range of musical elements that he and his group interpret with refreshing gusto and sophisticated virtuosity.” - Hrayr Attarian,  Chicago Jazz Magazine 

“2017 Editor’s Choice” - Downbeat Magazine 

The Chris Greene Quartet has been a highly visible part of Chicago’s jazz  scene since 2005, and has maintained a stable lineup from the beginning, with the exception of Steve Corley, who has held the drum chair since 2011. Damian Espinosa on piano and keyboards and Marc Piane on acoustic and electric basses have been onboard since the beginning. Unique among  Chicago bands, most of whom feature, by necessity, constantly shifting  personnel, the CGQ has been able to develop a true group sound and feel, harking back to bands from the classic age of jazz when groups could  stay together for long periods of time. While honoring the tradition, the CGQ incorporates elements of funk, hip-hop, rock, pop, the blues and reggae, reflecting their diverse backgrounds. CGQ is also recently was  honored at the 2018 Chicago Music Awards with an award for "Best Jazz  Entertainer” and recently won the “Best Jazz Band” category in the  Chicago Reader “Best of Chicago” Poll.
