The Greg Wahl Quartet

All day

The Greg Wahl Quartet performs music from his debut album as a bandleader titled "Shared Sounds", as well as a selection of other contemporary jazz standards. His album “Shared Sounds'' is a tribute to the healing nature of the shared music making experience, and is a stylistic blend of contemporary jazz and American folk music. Featuring all original compositions, the music invites listeners in with warm sounds and flowing, lyrical melodies. Greg will be joined by local Colorado greats Steve Kovalcheck (guitar), Greg Garrison (bass), and Dru Heller (drums).

Greg Wahl is a Chicago-based saxophonist, who originally grew up in Boulder, Colorado. During his time in Colorado, Greg established himself as a bandleader and composer with his contemporary jazz quintet Wahl Street. In Chicago, Greg continues to perform and compose music, and appears in a number of jazz, latin soul, and funk fusion groups. We are delighted to welcome Greg and his hard-swinging style back to the Nocturne stage.
