Robert MacGregor

Robert MacGregor (b. 1983 / Los Angeles, CA), of European and Chinese descent, is rapidly developing a unique voice combining such saxophone influences as Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh, Stan Getz, George Coleman, and Joe Henderson, with a compositional approach that evokes the work of such diverse innovators from Maurice Ravel to Lennie Tristano, Wayne Shorter, Richie Beirach, and Kenny Wheeler.

Being based in New York City since 2003 has afforded MacGregor the unparalleled opportunity to draw inspiration from both the brightest emerging talent of his generation as well as such cutting-edge artists as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner, and Dave Binney, among many others.

The result, as evidenced with the 2007 debut Refraction of Light, is music that is sophisticated and of-the-present yet accessible to a wide variety of listeners.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
