Ease into the sweet sounds of the Chris Greene Quartet from the comfort of your home at 7 p.m. Friday, June 26, in a concert organized through Water Street Studios in Batavia and WDCB radio.

Saxophonist and composer Chris Greene has collaborated with some of the nation’s most creative and versatile musicians, a news release stated. Greene plays with a variety of groups in a variety of genres.

“I wanted to go outside of tradition, to bring in these ridiculously talented players who because they weren’t known for playing jazz would bring something new to the music,” said Greene (chrisgreenejazz.com).

All proceeds from the evening will go to providing more art opportunities for everyone through programming at Water Street Studios, the release stated.

Green has performed/recorded with the following artists: Common, The Temptations, Eric Roberson, Ed Motta, Steve Coleman & Five Elements, Maysa Leak, Ten City, Sheena Easton, Steve Cole, Michael Manson, Andrew Bird, The J. Davis Trio, Chris Rob, Vic Lavender, Jesse De La Pena, Liquid Soul and The Mighty Blue Kings. Chris Greene was also featured in the "Play On" episode of the FOX-TV show "Empire," and he composed the score for the Chicago Children's Theatre’s recent production of “Bud, Not Buddy."

Join us for an evening of music and art with WDCB and the sounds of the Chris Green Quartet, invite concert organizers. You'll be able to watch the performance right at 7 p.m. on June 26 or enjoy it for a later date with a downloadable link. This performance is appropriate for all ages.
