In 2016, Abate was inducted in the RI Music Hall of Fame in 2016. “Multi-saxophonist Greg Abate is a prime example of the ‘rear back and blow’ school of contemporary bop-based players. The tunes he writes or chooses are based on the kinds of changes that harmony-oriented jazzmen have favored since the beginning and he swings through them with and eager and easy virtuosity.” –David Franklin, Jazz Times Greg Abate and his trio will perform songs from the American Playbook, classic jazz, be-bop jazz as well as original compositions. Abate will be joined by bassist, Paul Del Nero, drummer, Gary Johnson and pianist, Kent Hewitt.
