Product Description


Greg Chako creates a new style, breathing exotic jazz-ethno music full of spirit and solid musical foundation – Jazz Dimensions of Germany

A jazz mosaic painted with the very best of cultural, ethnic, and musical sensibilities. That striking combination provides a sumptuousness and extensiveness in the music that is rarely found in any genre. I think it’s safe to say that Greg Chako and his magnificent band are one of the world’s best-kept secrets. The word is now out; don’t hesitate in seeking out this essential jazz experience! – Keith ‘MuzikMan’ Hannaleck, Jazz Reviews

The music transcends geographic boundaries and cultures and communicates the happiness and friendship that all music should provide – Vince Lewis, Just Jazz Guitar

Recalls those exciting hard blowing sessions of the 1960’s which featured Hank Mobley, Donald Byrd, and Jackie McLean . . . with an effective mix of hard bop and Latin rhythms guaranteed to keep listener attention – David Nathan, All Music Guide

Chako, the composer, takes his inspiration from the rich Blue Note Iode, with echoes of Shorter, Hancock, and Dorham reverberating through his uniformly heartfelt performances, all of which sound like they could have found a home in the Jazz Messengers’ book – Cadence Magazine
