reviews of RE: Connnection:
"The cumulative effect of this music and these sounds treats me to the strange and imaginative ideas I’ve been hearing from the international jazz artists, and Greg Loughman should expect plenty of attention on the world jazz stage after Re: Connection. Highly recommended."
"fresh and inventive"
"Greg Loughman’s Re:Connection is indeed regarding connection and about re-establishing connection. It is hopeful, self-aware, self-critical, and full of tenderness and love."
Bassist, composer, and bandleader Greg Loughman has made a name for himself as an “emphatically lyrical” -Scott Albin, JazzTimes, versatile, and sensitive accompanist who plays "with sublime authority" -Raul d’Gama Rose, AllAboutJazz.com and "delivers not only the foundation, but also intriguing, melodic, cleanly stated solos" -Bill Donaldson, Cadence Magazine. Born in Zanesville, OH, Loughman currently lives in Boston, MA, where he earned a Master of Music degree from the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. He has performed and/or recorded with artists including Danilo Perez, Jerry Bergonzi, George Garzone, Hal Galper, Mark Murphy, and many others. Since 2014, he has toured extensively with gypsy jazz group the Rhythm Future Quartet and has made a name for himself in that genre, performing with such artists as Gonzalo Bergara, Stephane Wrembel, and John Jorgenson. In addition, Greg co-leads the groups Man On Land and Roving Soul, and performs with the John Funkhouser trio, Klezwoods, the Sonic Explorers, and many others. He is also an in-demand studio musician in the Boston area, and teaches at the Berklee College of Music, as well as teaching private lessons from his home or online. In the fall of 2020, he founded New England Jazz Connections, an organization that empowers jazz musicians to stage concerts to raise funds for worthy causes.
