Greg Loughman

Greg Loughman started playing electric bass at age fifteen in the small town of Zanesville, OH. He obtained a Bachelor of Music in the field of jazz studies at Capital University, where he studied electric and upright bass with Doug Richeson (bassist for a number of years with Tony Bennet), Jeff Ciampa, and Lou Fischer. While in college, he worked his way into the Columbus, OH jazz scene. Upon graduation, he quickly rose to a prominent position as one of the top freelance jazz bassists in the Midwest. After spending a year in Montana, Greg moved to Boston, where he continues to pursue an active schedule of performing and recording...

”. . . The trio configuration was new to me. Of course I had witnessed the legendary work of Ray Santisi and the solid creativity of Bob Kaufman countless times but bassist Greg Loughman was (perhaps to my embarrassment) new to me. And so my first question when I caught the trio with Patricia Adams 1/1 at Ryles was, “How will Greg Loughman and Bob work together?” If they don't connect, the show is over. Well, they do connect and the four of them by now work with such confidence that they push the bassist off the ledge once in a while just for the fun of it, as in the case of a bass-vocal duo section or when the bass is called upon to play the intro to “Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me” sans drums.” - Stu Vandermark, Cadence Magazine, March 2006 “Loughman swings with something close to nonchalance... but can equally arrest the listener’s attention with his deeply resonant soloing.” - Paul Donnelly, jazz critic, ejazz news May 25, 2004

“Greg Loughman is a fine bassist and composer. His bass tone is warm and woody...[and he] provide[s] virtuosic playing in service to the fundamental groove of each tune. Run out and by this CD...you won’t regret it.” - David Horgan, Lively Times, July 2001

“Bassist Greg Loughman's debut is a charming and sultry sojourn into Latin jazz. From Eric “The Fish” Paton's first timbale riffs on “Descarga” to Kris Keith's florid flute solo on the albums closer, “Khadsin,” you're transported back to the world of Getz-meets-Jobim and sangria...This is Greg's baby, he wrote all the tunes, but his playing is supremely unselfish-- not once do you stop and think, “Oh, this is the bass player's album,” ..if you're looking to relax to a well-crafted Latin-jazz album, this is definitely worth checking out.” - Don Zulaica, jazz critic, Alternate Music Press May 2001
