O’s Notes: Greg is a Chicago based trumpeter by way of Washington and Texas. He has spent time performing in Spain hence the Chicago, Barcelona Connections. The Spanish influence in his music is strong both on original compositions and with arrangements of standards. He leads a fine band through over 70 minutes of modern jazz, Latin and swinging mid-tempo classics like “Poinciana”. Patricia Ortega add vocals on “Correveidile/Run and Go Tell” to reset the pace midway through the set. It is a fine performance overall.
