Acoustic Jazz Duo
Using his sound to foster a space for an audience to have a fresh experience, Gregory Hasson is moved by music that evokes a sense of immersion in the moment.
The improvisational nature of jazz music captivated Gregory in his early teens, inspiring him to study guitar. As he has grown as a musician, Gregory has become most interested in the beauty of melodic compositions, the liveliness of swinging tunes, and new approaches to jazz standards. His biggest influences include Larry Koonse, John Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins. Gregory’s fluidity and sensibility while playing with some of Phoenix’s finest musicians helps bring an engaging and intimate atmosphere to venues throughout the Valley.
He has studied jazz guitar for eight years and is currently enrolled at Arizona State University seeking a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Performance under the direction of Jeff Libman.
