Biography

Leo Green (30 August 1972) is a British saxophonist, who has played for many bands and artists and spent 10 years in Van Morrison’s band, 2 years in Jerry Lee Lewis’s band, and has also worked with other artists including Tom Jones, Paul Weller and Jools Holland, and also as a producer for artists including Robbie Williams. He has contributed, by playing saxophone and arranging for albums released by artists like Van Morrison, Jools Holland and Jeff Beck. Green now plays saxophone and sings for his own band: The Leo Green Experience. He is now “one of the top saxophone players in the world”.

Green was musical director and conductor for Burt Bacharach and Hal David for their show at the Royal Albert Hall which was filmed for DVD release.
He was appointed Artistic Director of Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in 2005, prior to a huge refurbishment. Following the completion of the refurb, Green completely over hauled the clubs timings as well as introducing 2 houses a night on Fridays & Saturdays, which made it possible to afford a level of acts not seen at the club for decades. Under his stewardship, the club saw an incredible roster of acts appear, the like of which hadn’t been seen since the 1970s, and which haven’t been seen since his departure in December 2007. Green managed to persuade the likes of Tony Bennett, Van Morrison,Wynton Marsalis, Chick Corea, David Sanborn, Ramsey Lewis, Ron Carter, Branford Marsalis, Keely Smith, Macy Gray, Jose Felliciano, Chris Botti, Little Jimmy Scott, The Stylistics, Joan Armatrading, Marlena Shaw, Roy Hargrove and many others, to appear at the intimate 220 seat club.
