Album Notes
Recorded live, "Low Lonesome" features an exciting lineup of improvising musicians with Colorado roots: acclaimed trumpeter Ron Miles (Bill Frisell, Madeline Peyroux), saxophonist John Gunther (Maria Schneider Orchestra, Convergence), keyboardist Erik Deutsch (Charlie Hunter, Norah Jones) and drummer Marc Dalio (Erin McKeown). The collection of music includes several of Garrison’s own folk-influenced compositions as well as his takes on Strayhorn (“Johnny Come Lately”) and a pair of Scottish border ballads (“The Border Widow’s Lament/O Onochie O”).
Greg Garrison has strong connections to the musical worlds of bluegrass, folk, jazz, and rock, and has been able to work with a wide range of musicians including John Scofield, Joe Lovano, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Ron Miles, Del McCoury, Jayme Stone, Art Lande, Fred Hess, Rudy Royston, Edgar Meyer, Bryan Sutton, and Vassar Clements.

From 2005 until 2008, Garrison toured with mandolin virtuoso and composer Chris Thile, and along with Thile, was a founding member of the critically acclaimed chamber-bluegrass ensemble (and Nonesuch recording artist) Punch Brothers. Garrison is featured prominently as a performer and writer on Punch, the band’s 2008 debut release, as well as Thile’s solo record How to Grow a Woman from the Ground. During Garrison’s tenure with Thile and Punch Brothers, he performed at Carnegie Hall, on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, at the Grand Old Opry, and garnered two Grammy nominations.

Denver based trumpeter/composer Ron Miles features Garrison as part of his groups, and his bass playing can be heard on the “Blossom” side of Miles’s 2006 Sterling Circle release Stone/Blossom.

Juno award winning banjoist Jayme Stone ( featured Garrison on his recent critically acclaimed and Juno nominated album “Room of Wonders” along with guitarist Grant Gordy and fiddle whiz Casey Driessen.

Greg has also been a member of Colorado bluegrass/rock band Leftover Salmon since 2000, recording three albums with the band and performing at venues and festivals across the U.S. like Red Rocks, Telluride Bluegrass, High Sierra, and Bonnaroo.

Garrison continues to maintain an active performing and recording schedule with several regional and national artists in addition to his teaching duties at Metropolitan State College in Denver and the University of Wyoming. He received his MM in Double Bass Performance from the University of Northern Colorado, and his BM from the University of Illinois. He is also currently a candidate for the DMA in Jazz Studies at the University of Colorado, where he is exploring the common roots of all forms of American improvised music.
