Paul Hanson and Greg Johnson of Glass Brick Boulevard


Join us for a jazz duo performance by Paul Hanson and Greg Johnson.

Paul Hanson is a Bay Area-bred, world-renowned jazz bassoonist and saxophonist known for his diverse career with artists such as Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Cirque Du Soleil, DAVKA, St Josephs Ballet, Zenith Patrol, The Klezmorim, Paul Dresher Ensemble, Jonas Hellborg, Dennis Chambers, Eddie Money (sax soloist on "Take Me Home Tonight") and Boz Scaggs.

Composer and pianist Greg Johnson grew up in the Midwest listening to Gospel, Motown and Beethoven. In the early seventies, bands like Yes, The Who, and Pink Floyd began shaping the road that with the inclusion of Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Weather Report and others led to a compositional exploration that eventually began combining all of the influences and produced Glass Brick Boulevard.

In 2013 after a hiatus, Glass Brick Boulevard reformed with founder, composer Greg Johnson-piano, Rob Fordyce-bass, Paul Hanson-bassoon, and Celso Alberti-drums to create a one of a kind original contemporary jazz power quartet with a delicate touch that will make you dance and make you cry all in the same night.

"If Beethoven came back as Seal, we'd be back up band"
