Greg Spero - A Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition.

Saw Greg Spero play in March this year at Andy's jazz club in Chicago and thought he was absolutely  brilliant - the place was empty but I guess this is the problem with emerging young artists.
His first album was 'Radio over Miles' and was quite funky.
The latest is brilliant and much more thoughtful and melodic. Its called 'Acoustic' and it would be great to feature him on your blog. I think he's destined for big things and we should encourage the powers that be to get him over to the UK.
and there's a good video on youtube at  http://youtu.be/5RQmsQtZN3c
