Harlem Speaks
Greg Bandy, Drummer
July 10, 2008

Drummer Greg Bandy was discovered by Charles Mingus at the age of 20. He has played with a plethora of prominent jazz artists over the last thirty-plus years: Joe Henderson, Betty Carter, Pharoah Sanders, Olu Dara, Curtis Fuller, Jack McDuff, Leon Thomas, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, George Benson, Yusef Lateef and many others. Mr. Bandy's 1997 debut CD "Lightning in a Bottle" garnered two Grammy nominations. He produces "Bandy Does Blakey," a tribute to one of his mentors, the late Art Blakey, and often reunites former members of Blakey's Jazz Messengers. He fronts a regular band at St. Nickís Pub in Harlem. Heís got many tales to tell, so donít miss this chance!
