What the critics say......
“…Greene can keep the listener interested – very interested – for upwards of an
hour, all by himself. His new album, “Alone,” is a riveting hour plus of material,
mostly originals, that stand up well as melodic compositions played with passionate
dedication. There is a wide range of styles and forms, and there is no risk of
boredom among the eight tunes.”
-Steve Greenlee, Boston Globe
“…real sensation of this quartet is bassist Hilliard Greene, a man whose style is
deeply rooted in African music. He is an energetic player who slabs the corpus of his
bass, but also caresses the instrument with his bow
