Please join us for this evening featuring this national jazz treasure.
Everett Greene started singing doo wop professionally in the early '50s. Greene served in the Marines during the Korean War, and after his discharge he settled in Indianapolis. He became interested in jazz performers such as: Wes Montgomery, Freddie Hubbard, and David Baker. But Greene did not pursue his love of jazz for many years.
He had a day job as a machinist, and after Greene retired and became a full-time performer, at first he was a stage actor in several touring shows. In 1994 Greene made his first record. Since then he has issued two additional albums (including My Foolish Heart for the Savant label) and has recorded as a guest soloist on a set of Hoagy Carmichael songs with the Buselli Wallarab Jazz Orchestra. Everett Greene has worked with such musicians as pianists Junior Mance and Gerald Wiggins; organists Groove Holmesand Melvin Rhyne; and saxophonists Houston Person, Lou Donaldson, and David "Fathead" Newman.
