As both a leader and sideman, trumpeter Glenn Makos has performed at New York area jazz clubs, including Birdland, The Blue Note, and The Knitting Factory.

He is joined by saxophonist Craig Yaremko, bassist Joe Fitzgerald, and drummer Gene Lewin. Other projects as a leader include all original compositions on the album Houston Street, Now and Again, and Lapses In Synapsis, all on Stop Time Records.

A co-founder of the nine-piece group, New Jazz Resolution/ NoNoNonet, Glenn served as a composer and arranger. Among his works recorded with the group, Ellingtonesque: Uptown Suite, Veronica Timpanelli of www.jazzreview.com writes that the piece, “is infused with elegance, spicy world flavor, hot sibilant percussion, and traditional style all rolled into one juicy escapade.”

He has performed with Cleo Laine and John Dankworth in Bermuda, singer Titilayo Rachel Adedokun in Munich, and Santy y su Son de Cuba in Prague. Glenn has worked with flutist Dave Valentin, saxophonist Danny Weiss, pianists Joel Weiskopf, D.D.

Brooklyn guitarist Greg Diamond has been an emerging force in recent years and is now situated at the forefront of a new generation of contemporary latin jazz artists in New York City. Endowed with technical prowess and, above all, an impassioned distinguishable sound characterized by his mixed Latin American origins, Diamond puts forth an attractive and innovative concept of latin fusion in a modern jazz context.

 

Greg and his band have been seen performing at venues such as: The Blue Note, Iridium Jazz Club, Joe’s Pub, Smalls Jazz Club, Nublu, and Zinc Bar; not to mention numerous festival presentations, among them: The Madrid International Jazz Festival, Barranquijazz Festival, Jimmy Glass Jazz Festival, Teatro Libre Jazz Festival, Jazz al Parque Festival, and the Nublu Jazz Festival. In 2007 he was a semi-finalist at The Gibson International Jazz Guitar Competition hosted by The Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

 

Both Diamond’s debut “Dançando Com Ale” (Chasm 2008) as well as his second release “Conduit” (Dot Time 2012) have garnered him praise among critics world-wide:

 

Diamond has shared the stage with Seamus Blake, Henry Cole, Antonio Hart, Jon Benitez, Stacy Dillard, Emilio Solla, Michael Mossman, Don Friedman, Gretchen Parlato, Asha Puthli, and many others.
