Greg Skaff

Greg Skaff is a NYC-based musician and composer whose skills and reputation place him among the premier guitarists in jazz. Fresh to the Big Apple in the ‘80s, Skaff had his first professional gig with none other than Stanley Turrentine--which went so well the sax master kept him gainfully employed for the next five years. In subsequent years Greg has flourished as both a sideman and bandleader and played and recorded with, among others, Bobby Watson, Ruth Brown, Freddie Hubbard, David “Fathead” Newman, Kevin Mahogany, Gloria Lynne, Jim Rotondi, David Hazeltine, Bruce Barth, Mike LeDonne, Joe Farnsworth, Matt Wilson, Ben Allison, Orrin Evans, and Victor Lewis.
