Greg Chako

Standard Rootss (Mint 400 Records)

Guitarist Greg Chako’s 17th CD, Standard Roots, contains over 72 minutes of music, with an additional 23+ minutes of music included in the 4 ‘bonus tracks’ on the digital version of the album. The album represents a return to what Greg calls his “roots,” because it features the trio format of guitar, bass, and drums that he began his professional playing career with over 30 years ago. The trio is Greg Chako (guitar), Masson Daughters (bass), Michael Melody (bass).

Additionally, Greg says: “I treasure my own song-writing above all else, but I have never tired of playing standards. The Great American Songbook is still popular, and given the quality writing of composers such as Porter, Arlen, Jobim, Kern, & Hammerstein, there is always ample opportunity to flex ones’ improvisational chops with those songs.”
