Fiery, honest, and maniacally talented, Greg Gisbert hit the national jazz scene at an early age and seems to have been on the road ever since.

”They achieve a groove sought by many, but not easily found...” --Ira Gitler

“Convergence is phenomenal. It's a rare treat to hear a small group play compositions and arrangements that are so rich in ideas and formal development. Their pieces are wonderfully original and leave beautiful space to feature every musician in a unique way, and each musician is truly unique and extraordinary. I can't say enough about this group.” --Maria Schneider

“Folks, it just doesn't get better than THIS! Convergence should be known world-wide. I'm gonna do all I can to help that happen.” --Bobby Shew

”...their performances are marked by a genuine sense of unity.” --Linda Gruno, Westword
