Zac Greenberg's Cancer Concerto

Oct 1, 2015

Jazz musician and composer Zac Greenberg’s album Unexpected Journey was recorded live at The Redmoor in Mt. Lookout last April, during a fundraiser for the Barrett Cancer Center at the University of Cincinnati. 

Zac Greenberg’s jazz album Unexpected Journey is a study into the human reaction that comes with a diagnosis of cancer.

The jazz concerto was written in four movements, and the music, according to Greenberg, is a study into the human reaction in the face of unexpected unknowns and mortality that comes with a diagnosis of cancer. Zac Greenberg joins us to discuss Unexpected Journey and the inspiration behind the album.

Zac Greenberg released his album Unexpected Journey September 25, available on CD Baby. An album release concert will take place on Saturday, October 17, at Urban Artifact in Northside. Proceeds from sales of the album in October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month) will benefit Susan G. Komen, the breast cancer organization. For more information, click here
