~The Gregory Page Welcome Back Home House Concert~
An amazingly enjoyable evening of music and stories from Mr. Page's adventures on his international tour.
Gregory Page is a product of his own imagination. He was born in London, England on Easter Sunday in 1963 to Armenian and Irish parents who met while they were on tour with their bands en route to the Middle East. The boy showed little interest in academic or business studies and was always fascinated listening to 78 rpm records on his grandfather's phonograph.
Upon escaping to America he began a series of odd jobs, namely as a cab driver and cook; he also began tirelessly writing and recording his own brand of music. It's hardly an exaggeration to observe that the voice and music of Al Bowlly had a definite effect on Page's career.
Mr. Gregory Page's new self-released album "Once & For All" is a tip of the hat to Al and the Sweet Jazz from another era. Recorded by his longtime friend Jason Mraz, "live" on April 5th 2010, the new album features some of San Diego's finest Jazz Musicians. There is an indescribable sense when listening to his music that you have uncovered a secret. Like the music of Al Bowlly, Louis Armstrong, Harold Arlen & Cole Porter, Page is not inspired by American music -- he is American Music.
"The tightrope my music teeters upon is the struggle between tradition & progress, history & fantasy. I am the songbird & the worm." ~ G. Page
