Wilson Pickett spotted Gregory Simmons playing guitar in a fusion band at the famous jazz club “The Tralfamadore” in Buffalo NY in the late 70's. He was so impressed he insisted that the owners have Gregory add his signature to the list of jazz greats that the brothers collected at the Tralf. Gregory continued to play in a variety of bands to enthusiastic crowds in the northeast and South Florida throughtout the 80's and 90's. Now as a seasoned pro, Gregory has focused his attention on composing original material and has many projects in the works.

CD REVIEW FOR "SIGNS OF LIFE":

“Overall this disc took me by surprise - pleasantly so.”
Jeff Charney, ContemporaryJazz.com
You will not find Smooth Jazz on this disc.   What you wil find is a guitarist who takes his jazz playing pretty serious.   "Cabo Rojo" is my favorite track on the record.  It is an depth story with a nice melody that sounds like a travel log. Simmons is a very good guitar player.
