“Mr. Osby is now a mentor and a pacesetter,
one of the sturdier bridges between jazz generations.” – The New York Times

Saxophonist, composer, producer and educator Greg Osby has made an indelible mark on contemporary jazz as a leader of his own ensembles and as a guest artist with other acclaimed jazz groups for the past 20 years. Highly regarded for his insightful and innovative approach to composition and performance, Osby established himself as a notable and in demand sideman for artists as varied as Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Jack DeJohnette, Andrew Hill, Jim Hall and Jaki Byard.  Osby, who has an uncanny eye and ear for artists, assembled a groundbreaking quartet, giving early exposure to Jason Moran, Tarus Mateen, and Nasheet Waits, who ultimately became known as Bandwagon.  He hails from St. Louis, the gateway city that serves as home base for soulful altoist’s Oliver Lake and David Sanborn.
