BASS: CREATING MUSICAL AMBIANCE FOR YOUR OPENINGS
WHEN LIVE MUSIC AND VISUAL ARTS ARE INTERACTIVE

Jazz bassist Hilliard Greene plays Blues, Bop, Bach, and Negro Spirituals. The performance will complement your event giving attendees the feeling that they have experienced a special opening.

What the critics say:
“Technically and sonically, Greene’s bass sounds great; … his sound is deep and clean.”-John Kennedy, Double Bassist Magazine
“…Greene can keep the listener interested – very interested – for upwards of an hour, all by himself. His new album, “Alone,” is a riveting hour plus of material, mostly originals, that stand up well as melodic compositions played with passionate dedication. There is a wide range of styles and forms, and there is no risk of boredom among the eight tunes.” -Steve Greenlee, Boston Globe
“… His double-bass has the sonority like a guitar and continuity in his lines that seem to be pianistically inspired…A Strong presence… His language has in a way, a classical vocabulary that is at the same time deeply tied to the blues. There is in his music a strong conscience of the black tradition…”-Cesar Pardines, La Nacion; Buenos Aries, Argentina
“His fabulous arco bass mixes lyricism with a burning, literally ferocious desire of opening the listener’s mind.” -Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes, Italy
“Classical melodies, Jazz and Folk music from around the world have been internalized by Greene who proves his talent for pizzicato and arco playing in an equal measure on unaccompanied double bass…Alone is music rooted in the human condition.” -Jeff Stockton, All About Jazz
