Rex Gregory is a saxophonist and composer currently residing in New Orleans, Louisiana. He graduated from the University of New Orleans with a B.A. in Jazz Performance. He plays all forms of saxophones, clarinets, and flutes with near equal facility, which makes him a very sought after musician for a diverse array of projects. In addition, Rex is known for his composition and arranging abilities which are featured on his independently released studio recording, An End to Oblivion.
Rex has played with the premier jazz luminaries in New Orleans since his introduction into the city in 2002. He can frequently be heard with Jason Marsalis, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra led by Irvin Mayfield, David Torkanowsky, Steve Masakowski, Simon Lott, Brian Coogan, James Singleton, Germaine Bazzle, and many others.
While Rex Gregory is a staple in the New Orleans jazz community, he does not hesitate to venture out into other musical territories. He is always in the laboratory, concocting very diverse vehicles of expression. His idiosyncratic compositions, keyboard and compositional role in the rock band Bionica, and his calling to any project that is put forth with authenticity is a testament to his wide musical capabilities. Rex is a comfortable addition anywhere and everywhere.
Rex has toured and lived in Europe, performed across much of the continental United States, toured South America as a cultural ambassador, and more. He responds to the call of being an artist with sincerity, responsibility, and great enthusiasm.
