Synopsis

The late Gregory Bonaventure Lyons was a brilliant jazz saxophonist, composer, educator and bandleader. He was well-acquainted with to Esplanade, performed regularly at the annual Jazz in July, and series such as Mosaic Music Series and Late Nite. Greg's presence undeniably enriched the scene and significantly contributed to the development of Singaporean jazz. He was loved and highly regarded by his peers and jazz audiences, who drew inspiration from his passion for a diverse range of jazz sounds, particularly showcased through his 10-piece ensemble, Omniform. He also founded Grooveworks, an improvisational collective with rotating members whom he mentored. In recent years, Greg served as the curator of The Jazz Loft, providing a safe and consistent space for conceptual jazz presentations.
