Jazzman Greg Abate

On Friday, Grammy-nominated jazz musician Greg Abate brings his quartet to the Donald L. Oat Theater in the Norwich Arts Center as part of their First Friday Live Sounds music series.

Abate, who has played with the Ray Charles and Artie Shaw orchestras, is a superb saxophonist/flutist who's also well known as a composer and arranger. His most recent album, "The Greg Abate Quintet Featuring Phil Woods," was released in 2012 and earned a four-star review in the bible of jazz literature, Downbeat magazine.

The Abate Quartet can be expected to explore the post-bebop repertoire as well as feature original material. Fans can bring their own food and drinks, and snacks and beverages are also available at the theater.
