Update Greg Reitan

Primary Instrument: Piano

“I have been paying attention to Greg Reitan for several years now, finding him to be a pianist and composer who is already quite impressive and who seems to have a great deal of rapidly developing potential.” - Orrin Keepnews, from the liner notes for Antibes, released January 12, 2010 on Sunnyside Records

A native of Seattle, WA, Greg Reitan’s interest in music began at the age of ten. “I was fortunate to study with a number of great musicians,” he says, ‘[including] pianists Joni Metcalf, Dave Peck and composer/drummer Jerry Granelli. Summers were spent at the Bud Shank Jazz Workshop at Port Townsend, WA, where I studied piano with Hal Galper and arranging with John Clayton.” He won two scholarships to the Berklee School of Music, and the Kreielsheimer Scholarship at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle....

Reviews for Antibes (2010):

“Greg Reitan began the year with Some Other Time (Sunnyside, 2009), a spectacularly graceful record. He ends the year with another that equals - if not surpasses - the maturity of that album. Antibes is a work of exacting pianism and expansive grandeur. The record also dispels the notion that Reitan's music is an amalgam of his influences (Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett), for Reitan is a singular pianist with a technique becoming of a virtuoso of the highest order.”

—Raul d'Gama Rose, All About Jazz
