Mike Greensill Duo

“Among San Francisco’s many musical blessings, count the sensitivity, wit and inventive bounty of jazz pianist Mike Greensill.” Steven Winn, S.F. ChronicleFor two decades Mike Greensill has performed with long-time friend and mentor Dean Reilly in countless live appearances and on numerous CDs with Mike’s wife, vocalist extraordinaire Wesla Whitfield. This afternoon, they present a series of intimate duets for piano and bass and piano and pocket trumpet—so named because it could almost fit in one, and producing a sound, said jazz great Don Cherry, “like a dry martini”—the perfect instrument for San Francisco. The program features selections from the Great American Songbook, with emphasis on Duke Ellington, along with Mike’s own original works.
