One of urban contemporary jazz’s most versatile artists over the past 25 years, keyboardist/composer Gregg Karukas is a GRAMMY winner for producing, engineering, co-writing and arranging Omar Akram’s Echoes of Love, which won in the category of Best New Age Album. As a solo artist, Gregg’s own albums have garnered consistently solid reviews for his signature piano touch, pristine production, and melodies that are both soulful and sophisticated.

Always in demand as a musical director, composer, and keyboardist, his best-known singles, “Girl in the Red Dress,” “Nightshift,” and Jessy J.’s #1-hit “Tropical Rain” showcase Gregg’s funky, melodic compositional style familiar to his fans.

He is a founding member of The Rippingtons and since then has been in the company of the top acts in the Smooth Jazz and R&B pop genres, touring with Boney James, Peter White, Rick Braun, Dave Koz, Melissa Manchester, Larry Carlton, Sergio Mendes, Brenda Russell, Jeffrey Osborne and featured with various Allstar groups in recent years. He has had a diverse career in music with a long list of credits; Gregg arranged and played all keyboards on the theme songs to Disney's Ducktales and Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers and is a veteran of TV/Film music sessions.

This performance was originally recorded live on August 11, 2016, at Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, CA.
