Greg Bandy (The Mayor of Harlem)

Drummer Greg Bandy was discovered
by Charles Mingus at the age of 20. He has playedwith a plethora of prominent jazz artists over the last thirty-plus years including, 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.

These associations have securedhis status as a living legend. Of Greg Bandy,

the New Yorker, wrote, " of those rare old-school drummers who remind you what the art of jazz percussion is all about, adds class as well as rhythmic friction to Bartz's band." His playing is described as "progressive, not nostalgic, employing music from all over the globe." Bandy is a staple of jazz festivals the world over.

Mr. Bandy’s 1997 debut CD “Lightning
in a Bottle” garnered two Grammy nominations. After returning to his hometown of Cleveland, he headed his own trio and was the co-leader of the Eddie Henderson/Greg Bandy Quartet. He produced “Bandy Does Blakey,” and with this ensemble, he made a tribute to one of his mentors, the late Art Blakey, and often reunites former members of Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
