It took but a few impeccably shaped phrases to make it plain that Kallor is a formidably well-trained technician and a master of stylish proportion as well.
— Harris Goldsmith

Gregg’s solo performances feature his dynamic original compositions - which fuse the classical and jazz traditions he loves into a new, deeply personal language - and a seamless blend of music that eliminates the idea of genre. His acclaimed piano suite, A Single Noon, is a musical tableau of life in New York City told through a combination of composed music and improvisation. Other recent piano compositions include Notes From Underground, commissioned by SubCulture NY, and a tribute to Leonard Bernstein.

Pianist Gregg Kallor delivered exactly what I want... a compact, emotionally focused program that set notated masterworks by Brahms and Rachmaninoff alongside jazz-rooted contemporary compositions by Fred Hersch, Brad Mehldau, singer songwriter Elliot Smith, and himself.

A SINGLE NOON is a tableau of life in New York City told through a combination of composed music and improvisation. The nine movements are meant to be evocative snapshots - moments of caffeinated bliss, embarrassing subway mishaps, the buzzing energy of a city driven by dynamic, thoughtful, talented, and slightly crazy people.

A SINGLE NOON is the work of an extraordinary pianist, a composer of great distinction and a true conceptualist... this ambitious and unique suite takes us somewhere that is very deeply heartfelt and dazzlingly executed. This is 21st-century music that has clearly absorbed the past and looks to a bright and borderless musical future.
— Fred Hersch, GRAMMY®-nominated pianist and composer

Kallor played a Bernstein tribute titled “The Answer Is: Yes,” and if you braced yourself for West Side Story clichés, you were happily surprised with an extravagant fantasy... that showed just how fine of a pianist Kallor is.
— David Patrick Stearns

A pianist and composer who deftly balances modern-classical and jazz-inspired impulses in his handsomely constructed, approachable and engaging works.
