Guillermo Gregorio

Clarinetist, saxophonist and composer Guillermo Gregorio was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where became interested in jazz clarinet by listening to Pee Wee Russell and Jimmy Noone but began to pursue experimental music in the early 1960s, culminating in his Unheard Music project.  In addition to his musical work, Gregorio also worked as a professor of architecture and as an author writing about classical and modern avant-garde music forms. He lived in Los Angeles and Vienna and then relocated to Chicago, where he taught at Purdue University and had a work commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Since 1995 Gregorio has recorded several albums for HatHut Records, working with Carrie Biolo, Michael Cameron, Jim O’Rourke, Mats Gustafsson and Kjell Nordeson.

A long-time stalwart of the Chicago scene, he has recently relocated to the East Coast.
