Warren Greig is a Canadian Jazz Guitarist whose second album "Here With You" features all original material. On this CD Warren is accompanied by Paul Wiggins on Hammond B3 organ, Lindsay Prior drums, Byron Stoehr plays electric bass on four tracks and Mark Inneo plays drums on Riley and Tankhouse.
This album of contempory jazz has a strong blues influence but also features music in the latin, ballad and swing idioms. After playing a weekly club date Warren and Paul wanted to document the development of the music. Paul built a studio around his vintage Hammond B3 organ and it was decided to record only original material.
The CD is reviewed in All About Jazz by Robert Sutton. Here is an excerpt of the review;
Warren Greig creates an atmosphere of intimacy on the aptly-titled Here With You. In this hypnotically captivating collection of original guitar instrumentals, Greig crumbles the walls that separate the artist from his audience. While the music isn't as introspective as one would expect from such a spare, naked setting, Greig's compositions are certainly personal and revealing; their wordless emotions open to multiple interpretations.
