The Hannah Gallery will be presenting master guitarist Lloyd Gregory in concert on Friday, June 14, at 7 p.m.
Gregory will be performing a musical odyssey featuring African, reggae, Brazilian, blues, smooth jazz sounds and R&B.
Stanley Clark calls Lloyd Gregory a “modern-day Wes Montgomery.”
Gregory creates an eclectic and electrifying evening of smooth jazz and soulful sounds spanning the African Diaspora. Featuring music from his latest CD, “Gentle Warrior,” this musical experience promises to be intellectually provocative and rhythmically magical.
Although Gregory has released five critically acclaimed albums of his own, he has also recorded with Martha Reeves, MC Smooth and Freddie Stewart (Sly & The Family Stone); and has performed onstage with Rodney Franklin, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Gerald Albright, Lenny Williams (Tower of Power), Freda Payne, The Dells, and Lowell Fulsom.
He spent years touring extensively while serving as musical director for The Ballads, Natural Four and Jesse James, and performed on their albums. As a studio musician in Los Angeles, he worked with producer Richard Perry and played sessions with top musicians such as Klaus Voorman (The Beatles), Arthur Adams (B.B. King, Quincy Jones), Harvey Mason (Herbie Hancock, George Benson) and Joe Sample (The Crusaders).
The Hannah Gallery is located on 170 Donahue St. in Marin City, next to Best Buy. Tickets can be purchased on-line for $20 or $21.69 with service fee.
