“Gregory is a welcomed new addition to the music scene. Not locked into any style
of music, he is a true performer. Be it ballads or blues, (he) delivers and swings too!”
-Sheila E. Anderson, WBGO-FM
“… (re) Generet-ion, a soothing set that takes you back to the heyday of legendary
vocalists Johnny Hartman and Joe Williams. Through it all, Generet invigorates jazz standards and brings them alive for today’s diverse lifestyles.” -Ebony
“[Generet’s] fitting sound is so unsullied it defines the art of ballad artistry…he is on
the case in powerful yet softly laden versions of some wonderful songs. The stillness
in his voice is ear shattering.” –Dan Singer, InTune International UK
“Gregory Generet delivers! His confidence offstage is matched by an onstage persona
that is virile, sexy and engaging.” – Lynn DiMenna, Cabaret Scenes
Additionally, the CD “(re) Generet-ion has been chosen by NARAS as a selection for GRAMMY®AWARD Nomination for:“Best Jazz Vocal Album” also “Moon Dance” for “Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying a Vocalist.”
Generet takes on the theme of romance in his performance and re-imagines the term “standard” by adding his own vocal flexibility and appreciation for the clarity that is innate to all Jazz aficionados. On (RE) GENERET-ION, Generet culled his taste for the international reach that both music and romance demanded, inspired by sets he performed throughout New York City, Paris, and Italy, as well as by musicians such as Mike Renzi, Eric Reed, and Onaje Allan Gumbs.
For Generet, music is a second career that began as a result of being inspired by growing up to the Motown sound in Brooklyn and through the encouragement of TONY Award-winning actress and wife, Tamara Tunie. After 25 years and three Emmy Awards under his belt and a job as a post-production editor Generet had grown dissatisfied artistically. He realized that he wanted to sing and hone his craft. He then went into the recording studio where he called upon his jazz friends to develop a concept; Generet released (re) Generet-ion in 2009.
He has performed throughout New York City with sold-out shows at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Highline Ballroom, Joe’s Pub, and the Edison Ballroom. His debut effort has garnered much attention, including radio play across the country at stations like KKJZ-FM in Los Angeles, as well as Jonathan Swartz’s “The Saturday and The Sunday Show.”
