A product of the renowned Alpha Boys Band, Greene graduated from the institution that has blessed Jamaican music with talents Tommy McCook and Don Drummond.
In the mid 70’s Greene stepped into the lime light and worked with some of the industry’s legendary backing bands including the Bare Essentials, The incomparable Sonny Bradshaw ensemble and the Lloyd Parks led We The People band, before breaking away to pursue his solo career.
After releasing two indie albums to mixed reviews, his third try entitled “Square From Cuba” earn the artist critical acclaim, and propelled his signature sound into the mainstream.
Tony has shared the stage, providing musical accompaniment, with international artistes such as Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls and Gladys Knight & The Pips. He has showcased his artistry from Norway to Africa and from the United States to Japan.
Now the Man with the golden sound, heads to Canada on October 12th to promote his newest serving of sax-driven music. “Midnight Blue” is a full length production containing tracks helmed by some of Reggae’s Pioneer producers including Mallory Williams, Sly & Robbie and young guru Stephen Mcgregor. The disc also features a few noted collaborations with fellow musicians Ernie Ranglin and Natasha.
