I have a pair of  CC51Ps and A161Ps. I use the first for checking the low-end on my mixes. It never fails to reveal the correct amount of kick and bass that I need to add to a mix. To me the A161Ps are the equivalent of my Event studio monitors (Studio Precision 8) in a headphone version. They are kind of understated, but very accurate. Bad mixes don’t sound good, great mixes shine.

I am also proud that I am an official Talented MEE artist. Thank you guys!



I am thrilled to announce that I will perform at the Catalina JazzTrax Festival on October 19, 2014 at 7pm.



The founder of Earth, Wind & Fire, Mr. Maurice White, has signed Greg to his record label Kalimba Music. Here is a pic of the signing event with Kalimba Music, Inc. CEO Arthur Macnow.

I’m happy to announce that my very first single made Song Of The Year on the Smooth Jazz Network. Thank you to Allen Kepler and all radio stations terrestrial, satellite and internet. This is a great way to end the year! I’m also working hard on a new CD. Stay tuned …

I wish everybody Happy Holidays and a fantastic 2014!

I was part of the fantastic Dave Koz cruise on the Navigator of the Seas departing from Rome, Italy. What a great week we all had on that ship! I performed 4 shows and was on a keyboard summit panel with Brain Culbertson, Keiko Matsui, Gregg Karukas and Oli Silk.

Thanks Dave for inviting me!

Try to find me in the picture. I’m in there … 😉
