TONIGHT: Chris Greene Quartet CD Release Party at Green Mill (21+) #Jazz #CDRelease

CHRIS GREENE QUARTET 
(CD RELEASE PARTY)


It's better than a green river and far better than green beer.  Have a green evening at The Green Mill with The Chris Greene Quartet CD Release Party. 

Saturday March 8
8:00pm - 12:00am
$12 cover
Saturday, 8pm-midnight




CD Release Party for “MUSIC APPRECIATION” on Single Malt Recordings

featuring:

Chris Greene – saxophones
Damian Espinosa – piano
Marc Piane – bass
Steve Corley – drums

We can't think of a better venue.  The Green Mill has atmosphere to spare and a storied history as a speakeasy with underground tunnels to let partiers out into the bank across the street in case of a raid.  

No raids tonight--and plentiful beer.  

The Chris Greene Quartet celebrates Music Appreciation at The Green Mill


Local saxophonist and composer Chris Greene and his quartet have a new CD entitled Music Appreciation that draws from all eras of jazz, as well as 70s soul and 80s progressive pop acts from Prince to The Police and Yellow Magic Orchestra. CGQ celebrates the release with a show at the legendary Green Mill on Saturday, March 8th.  Click here for full details.
