A New York City project with my old schoolmate, Tim Ries, on saxophone, Steve Davis on drums, and the great Drew Gress playing bass.

“I perceive in DeGreg’s approach echoes of several of my special favorites, including Kenny Barron, Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris and Billy Taylor….the music itself is first-class, and the core trio is as securely anchored and synchronous as they come.” –  Jack Bowers, All About Jazz

“…an ear-pleasing session that’s full of ingenuity and surprise.” – CD Now

“..surprisingly varied, displaying the huge range of what a piano trio is capable of.” – Larry Nager, Cincinnati Enquirer

“…repertoire, personnel, original/cover material are in perfect balance. More than a few New York musicians could learn from this guy in Cincinnati.” – Matt Snyder, Jazz Improv Magazine
