Gotta get that title out there for our Grammy Award-winning, Maryland Man! Indeed, Gregg Karukas is returning to "Hybrid Jazz" with yet ANOTHER feather in his cap: a luscious new musical project called "Soul Secrets."
Keyboardist, Composer and Producer and MORE. For over two decades, Gregg has been captivating our psyches with his psoulfulness :-D (HAD to go there!) There is so much that can be said about our guest! He truly is the pride of Bowie, Maryland - where he starred in the Starliners Big Band in high school. An early champion of the synthesizer, Gregg owned one of the first mini-moogs. He was in the top Washington, D.C., Jazz-Rock band, East Coast Offering. This region knew him WELL! Moving to Los Angeles in 1982, his reputation followed him. Five years later, he was one of the original members of the Rippingtons. And through the years, he found work with Larry Carlton, Melissa Manchester and Sergio Mendes. His collaborations with Brazilian composer, Dori Caymmi and his work with Omar Akram set him apart from almost anyone in the genre of Contemporary Jazz. Especially satisfying is the Grammy from last year's "Echoes of Love" with Omar. Gregg produced, engineered, arranged and co-wrote immensely ear-pleasing music for the project, which garnered "Best New Age Album" honors.
Raise your hand if you know Gregg's OWN tunes when you've heard them on the radio. Many of us do and are grateful for the velvet passion that soaks through the airwaves like bliss - if that had notes :) This is a true student of music who dabbled with drums and guitar and trumpet as a child - but chose the keys to the highway ultimately. And never looked back. The artistry from "Soul Secrets" seals that deal for GOOD. Join us on 10/1 with Mr. Sublime ;)
