Listen to “02/08/17 Greg Manning – Soul/Jazz/Funk Keyboardist” on Spreaker.

Greg Manning is a Berklee College of Music alum and an amalgam of cultures. He was born in Nigeria and raised in Switzerland. Greg moved to Los Angeles in 2002 and has had an incredible career. He is a three-time certified platinum producer for Universal Music Switzerland, and has had several Swiss Chart toppers since 1996.

Greg is the former keyboardist and music director for GRAMMY Award-nominated artist Jonathan Butler…  and keyboardist for Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright, Will Downing, Richard Elliot, Brian McKnight, Chante Moore, and Kirk Whalum, just to mention a few.

After touring extensively for ten years throughout the U.S., Europe, South Africa, and the U.K., Greg made a conscious decision to come off the road. Not too long thereafter, he started composing music for film and television.

As an artist, his own music is the union of jazz, soul, and funk… and has been described as “Soul-Jazz at its best”…  which can clearly be heard on his latest album “Sugar and Spice”. Released on Kalimba Records, the title track recently reached #5 on Billboard, spending 20 weeks on the charts.
