Greg Skaff plumbs the depths of creative artistry and honest emotion in his guitar playing, showing himself to be among the leading proponents of jazz music anywhere. No exaggeration. The native Kansan, whose first professional job was a five-year stay in the band of saxophone giant Stanley Turrentine, has flourished as a first-call sideman in New York City since the 1980s. He brings his trio to Zinc on Monday, July 15 for an evening of standards and original music. He’s supported by bassist Matt Dwonszyk, and drummer Jonathan Barber.
He’s played gigs and/or recorded with past masters Ruth Brown, Freddie Hubbard, and David “Fathead” Newman as well as notables Ron Carter, Ben Allison, Bruce Barth, Pat Bianchi, George Colligan, Orin Evans, Joe Farnsworth, David Hazeltine, Mike LeDonne, Victor Lewis, Gloria Lynne, Ralph Peterson, Jr., Jim Rotondi, E. J. Strickland, Bobby Watson, Matt Wilson, and others.
Showtimes are at 7:30 pm & 9:00 pm. Tickets: $20 in advance / $25 at the door. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit https://www.zincjazz.com.
