I want to use this section of my blog not just to feature already widely celebrated players, but also people whom are truly on their way to becoming the top musicians of tomorrow.
Greg Ward is an alto saxophonist, composer, and bandleader. Greg has a great progressive sound, he has rhythmic superpowers, his technique is brilliant, and everything he plays is soulful. There are so many great sax-players in NYC, but to me Greg really stands out. Whenever we chat about what he is working on it is something like doing harmonic analysis of a symphonic work or getting a little deeper into electronic music.
