Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com Gregg Karukas hails originally from the D.C. - Maryland area where he was one of the top fusion and studio players in town. Gregg moved to L.A. in 1983, not with the idea of getting his own record deal, but with the desire to expand his multi-keyboard style by playing with as many other artists as possible. That Gregg Karukas can write such compelling songs in a variety of styles should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the Bowie, Maryland native' Karukas' influences apan Miles Davis, Ahmad Jamal, Les McCann, Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock to mainstream jazz players like Clifford Brown and Lee Morgan. One of his biggest influences was the master jazz pianist Bill Evans. Join us for a Cool Jazz Conversation with Gregg Karukas as he talks about his latest release "GK"
