Album Notes
"Greene has managed, through the process of recording and arranging, to turn the music itself into science...[Chris] has shown that pop, rock and R&B tunes can all exist on a jazz record because, stripped to their very core, they are all music. What a great discovery."
-All About

"This is a contemporary masterpiece that will hopefully help bring jazz to the masses...This tight-knit band has a great future if they can continue to mine this rich vein of musical gold that they have discovered.”

"Greene and his quartet dish up a tasty brew that mixes soul, jazz, R&B and pop into the enjoyable mix."

"...what are the jazz world needs...Overall, [the album] lives up to its name, show-casing a young hungry band full of fire and thoughtfulness and diverse influences and not afraid to mix it up and show it off."
-Knock the

“Their mastery of their respective instruments shines through on each note…[they] have a rock solid sound, and regardless of if they playing written music or dabbling in the freeform/experimental side of jazz, they pull it off smoothly…smart jazz, that’s easily enjoyed and appreciated by the occasional jazz fan or the longtime jazz connoisseur.”

“Burnin' saxophonist Greene keeps the tempos up with his equally hard-working rhythm section.”
-Time Out Chicago

“an up-and-coming player who really hits hard with a tight, no-nonsense approach.”

“The funkiest brother on the planet. Maceo [Parker] better watch out.”

Chris Greene Quartet, Soul and Science, Vol. I
I'm slightly biased, since Chris is family. I really enjoyed his CD! It was just too short. Without knowing it was his composition, I immediately chose "4.23" as my favorite. It is even more my favorite knowing the story behind the composition. It's nice having such an artist in the family! I'm excited for him and his group!


Great CD
I really enjoyed this cd, but like one reviewer said it was to short. I still is a must have for all lovers of good Jazz music. I even put it on mt ipod to listen while working out. 4.23 is also my favorite, maybe because it's the only original, but it's all good.
