Greg Pagel is a jazz pianist, accordionist, and composer from Wisconsin. He is a member of the Green Bay jazz quintet, "Open Interest", and of the accordion/guitar duo, "Pick and Squeeze." He has also been working with the Janet Macklin Group. Greg has performed at Jordan Hall and Symphony Hall in Boston, as well as Lincoln Center in New York. He has performed on stage with such notable musicians as Kenny Wheeler, Benny Golson, Joe Maneri, Cecil McBee, Bob Moses, Luciana Souza, Ricky Ford, Matt Turner and Bobby Vinton. Greg's latest CD, "Plastic Machine Music," is a daring fusion of jazz with hip-hop and electronica. CD Baby gave the CD 5 stars, calling it "an ingenius hybrid of jazz fusion backdrops, experimental electronic innovation and a poprock-informed writing," and praising its "creative development of motives and ideas, an overall giddy enjoyment of urban, industrial and machine noises.”
