Gregory

Lloyd Gregory is a well-established classic jazz guitarist whose style is smooth, soulful, melodic, flowing and immediately likeable. What makes his approach distinctive is that it evokes unique hints of his extensive R&B roots. He is a master of both acoustic and electric guitar. Although Gregory has released five critically acclaimed albums of his own, he has also recorded with Martha Reeves, MC Smooth and Freddie Stewart (Sly & The Family Stone); and has performed onstage with Rodney Franklin, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Gerald Albright, Lenny Williams (Tower of Power), Freda Payne, The Dells, and Lowell Fulsom.

He spent years touring extensively while serving as the musical director for The Ballads, Natural Four and Jesse James, and performed on their albums. As a studio musician in Los Angeles, Gregory worked with producer Richard Perry and played sessions with top musicians such as Klaus Voorman (The Beatles), Arthur Adams (B.B. King, Quincy Jones), Harvey Mason (Herbie Hancock, George Benson) and Joe Sample (The Crusaders).

Raised in Cleveland a part of a musical family, Gregory is now primarily based in San Francisco and has been a popular entertainer on the Bay Area music scene for several decades. Minor 7th: Acoustic Music Review says, “Lloyd expertly fuses soul, pop and jazz, forging a hybrid that is both enjoyable and intellectually stimulating.”

Gentle Warrior is Gregorys first album for Stanley Clarkes Roxboro Entertainment Group label. As we grow in time, age, experience, knowledge and wisdom, there comes a time when its time to put it all to music and share it with the world, Gregory states. For this album, its time to make music for my friends.

Glen Pearson, piano/keyboard; Janice Maxie Reid, vocals/keyboard/piano;  Joe Thomas, bass; Ritchie Aguan, drums; James Henry, percussion; and Lloyd Gregory, guitar.
