Greg Johnson Contemporary Big Band feat. Bob Mintzer

Dr. Greg Johnson is quickly becoming recognized as a luminary figure in the Jazz community. Equally at home in multiple genres, Greg has developed a unique musical style that combines Jazz, Classical, and Popular music.

As a saxophonist, he has appeared in concert and on mainstream recordings with Jazz greats like Curtis Fuller, Billy Taylor, Dick Oatts, Alan Pasqua, Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, and many more. He’s also appeared on stage with Pop and Rock acts, such as Saint Motel, Robin Thicke, and Barry Manilow at some of the biggest festivals and venues in the world.

As a composer, Greg’s music has been heard and performed around the world in both Jazz and Classical contexts in small groups, big bands, and symphonic formats. Currently the Director of Jazz Studies at the Marin School of the Arts in the San Francisco Bay area, Greg Johnson was added to the 2017 GRAMMY ballot in the category for “Best Improvised Jazz Solo” for his work on Aaron Serfaty’s album, In the Game.
