Profile Information

Where are you located?
Evanston, IL
Tell us a little about your background...
Saxophonist and composer Chris Greene was born in Evanston, IL and began his musical journey via his parents’ record collection, which included the soul and funk of the 1970s, the Motown and Stax sounds of the 1960s and the forward-thinking jazz of the 1950s.

He began playing saxophone at 10, and he eventually spent his formative years in the award-winning Evanston High School Wind and Jazz Ensembles. Around this same time, he began to play professionally with many local pop/rock and jazz bands.

In 1991, Greene went to Bloomington, IN to attend the prestigious Indiana
University Jazz Studies program, which was created and administered by renowned professor and cellist David Baker. While in Bloomington, he studied saxophone performance, jazz arranging, composition, history and improvisation. Greene quickly made his mark within the ranks of the music departments; he rapidly developed his individual style by studying the recorded works of the masters (Davis, Parker, Ellington, Coltrane, etc.) and becoming lead alto saxophone in the IU concert and lab jazz bands.

Greene left the Indiana college town in 1994 and returned to Chicago. He immersed himself in the regional music scene and has since collaborated with some of the nation’s most creative and versatile musicians. A musical “chameleon,” Greene can be seen with the soul/deep house musical collective Mr. A. L. I., the hip-hop band, The J Davis Trio and his own band, The Chris Greene Quartet. He has also backed up major artists such as Otis Williams and the Temptations and hip hop icon Common.
