Greg Abate performs about 250 days a year by his own estimate. Last week he finished a month of dates in California. A Woonsocket, Rhode Island resident Abate will play two gigs locally before traveling to New Mexico followed by a month long tour of the UK.

This podcast is a little different in that it was recorded on the air last Tuesday May 19th at WRIU where I host the Jazz Explorer program. The conversation was much more casual and relaxed than our last conversation. There is a lot to be said for body language and eye contact that is missing from an interview on Skype or over the phone.

Greg will be recording a new album this August and releasing a two CD live set recorded last year at Chan’s in October.

Upcoming Local Performances:

May 23 Chan’s Presents Greg Abate  Quartet A Motif Evening with Tim Ray, John Lockwood and Mark Walker

June 5 with The Joe Potenza Trio, Aspire Jazz Lounge  Hotel Providence

Aug 16 Jamestown RI Music Series, Jamestown RI on the green
