AVENIDA GRAHAM REVIEW  JAZZWISE MAGAZINE

APRIL 2017 

"Perhaps guitarist Greg Diamond's most creative and complete recording to date..." -Ed Blanco

Review of AVENIDA GRAHAM on AAJ

"Greg Diamond’s music throughout this set shows him to be an accomplished composer and this, a rather admirable trait in any circumstance, is backed by greater musicianship – not mere virtuosity – with which to approach the guitar than many musicians on the instrument today"  -RAUL DA GAMA

AVENIDA GRAHAM REVIEW

on jazz-blues.com 

“…There are so many pleasures listening to these originals, whether Diamond’s clean, fleet picking and warm tone, his unison heads with saxophonists Dillard or Blake, the marvelous rhythm section and pianist Eckroth, able to move from hard bop to Afro-Cuban…”

NEW RECORDING PROJECT

In May of 2015 we went to Sear Sound Studios  to record my third album as leader.  This project will feature an array of my most recent compositions.  Many of these pieces are the culmination of years of work as a composer. I decided to spare no expense, with the end of making this recording exceptional.  I had the privilege of working with the great James Farber on the mix and I'm having it mastered by Dave Darlington. So far we're all really pleased with how it's coming out.  Release date and info TBA.
