Greg Ruvolo Big Band Collective

Greg is no stranger to the music business. He has performed internationally with such names as Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Gerry Mulligan, Louis Bellson, Woody Herman, Skitch Henderson and the New York Pops, as well as a 30-year career as a NY studio Musician and playing in the pit orchestras of the Broadway Theaters.

Our Big Band is a hand picked collection and collaboration of some of the finest musicians I know. These instrumentalists (both men and women) are from different ethnic backgrounds and countries residing here in New York City and each bringing their unique personality and musical experience with them. I like to mix up the age groups as well when considering who to offer a chair to in the band. Our ages span from the mid-twenties to over 70. This also brings a rich variety of experience and energy to the music. Many of us have recorded, traveled and performed with some of the legends of the Jazz world including: Ray Charles, Count Basie, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, Gerry Mulligan, and Benny Goodman to name a few.
