Project Greenfield

Project Greenfield that's Bay Area music par excellence, i.e. music for the mind = psychedelic rock, East Bay funk, jazz fusion and lyrics that blend with the music. The band consists of musicians that know their trade (see info underneath). Together they create music that features quite a few styles the Bay Area has to offer. All of the songs on their new album "Edge Of Time" were written by Pat Morris and Jim Knowles (except 'Para Ti' and 'Whitecaps'), i.e. Project Greenfield doesn't need to copy they create their own flow of music. The album tries to capture the band's live sound and one gets an idea of the spheres Project Greenfield reaches when playing a club.

Check out the band's personnel and discography:

Pat MorisPat Morris combines rock, jazz, fusion, funk, classical, and reggae in a powerful, expressive style. Pat studied classical guitar with Josef Raposo, jazz and theory at Berklee College, and with jazz legend Dave Creamer. He toured the East with funk & soul bands Brothers Six and Kith & Kin, opening for acts such as Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, and recorded backing tracks for R&B singer Margo Thunder. After moving to California, Pat toured with rock and fusion bands Elements, Hot Face, Mystery Train, Automatic Blue, and with roots/reggae band George & the Wonders. Pat did session work with producer Paul Harvey for A & M and Warner Bros, John Lee Hooker, and legendary reggae guitarist Hux Brown.
Jim Knowles began playing keyboards professionally in his teens and has backed R&B artists Jimmy McCracklin, L. C. "Good Rockin" Robinson, and toured with It's a Beautiful Day founder David LaFlamme. He's shared the stage with Big Mama Thornton, Larry Graham, John McLaughlin and Jorma Kaukonen, and has recorded at Wally Heider/Hyde Street and Fantasy studios. Knowing no better, he hooked up with Pat and Tim in the Bay Area jazz fusion band Elements and rock band Hot Face.Jim Knowles
