5.22.19: Greb Abate Interviewed on Neon Jazz

Earlier this week, Greg Abate was featured on Neon Jazz for interview regarding his fourth recording with the Tim Ray Trio on the Whaling City Sound label with his CD Gratitude – State Door Live @ The Z. Abate shares with his listeners his continuous desire for improvement and critical thoughts he possesses about his performances that in turn, only aid in his ability to grow. Lately he has been trying to be more creative, creating different lines and verses for different lengths to switch things up. Contrary to the publics initial belief, this performer unlike many others, prefers a lack of rehearsal before recording or performing. He states “I like the in the moment type of playing…that unpredictable rehearse”. Greg Abate and the Tim Ray Trio’s newest album is described by Abate himself as “sincere with no gimmicks…with communication with the audience both verbally and musically”. It is truly a beautiful album. Check out the full interview to get to know the real Greg Abate!
