FEATURED RELEASE

GREG WARD – STOMPING OFF FROM GREENWOOD

Chicago-based alto saxophonist and composer Greg Ward (Tortoise, Lupe Fiasco, Makaya McCraven) presents a new group, Rogue Parade, featuring a quintet of heavyweight creative Chicago musicians: Matt Gold and Dave Miller (guitar & effects), Matt Ulery (bass), and Quin Kirchner (drums).

… one of the most versatile jazz musicians of his generation, with a deep-seated curiosity that drives him to push himself into new territory.”

SUBSCRIBER SERIES

ON-DEMAND ACCESS TO EXCLUSIVE CONTENT

Every year for the past few years we have produced a special recording session to be released via our subscription series. Before that, we released special unreleased extras, outtakes, and other discographical oddities. It’s what you will get exclusively when you subscribe to Greenleaf Music.

ENGAGE is a direct descendant of UPLIFT, the 2018 set of compositions dedicated to positive action. We will be following up with all the organizations and causes invoked in that piece. And engaged in community and activism. People showed up in 2018, and our hope is that this trend will continue. We are going to need to be engaged to make the changes that will save our environment, our equality, our sciences and humanities. My hope is that everyone, in every field, will be involved and engaged in this work. Writing and performing these pieces is a reminder to myself not to get mired in the negativity — to stay positive and engaged through music daily.
