‘Dallas’ Most Adventurous Guitarist and Probably Its Best” –Dallas Observer
Gregg Prickett is one of the most consistently creative guitarists in North Texas. A Dallas native, he has played with jazz combos, rock and country groups of all kinds throughout the area. In the late 90s and early 2000s, he led the Monks of Saturnalia, a jazz group playing a cutting-edge style that took influence from post-bop, free jazz, rock, and a lush, Mingus-inspired sense of harmony; some of the many books of songs he wrote for this project resurface in his current performances. He is a member of Unconscious Collective, a jazz-rock crossover incorporating aspects of psychedelia, experimentation, free improvisation, body art, theater and ritual. In addition he delved into the outer sonic reaches with metroplex luminary Sarah Ruth Alexander in They Say The Wind Made Them Crazy, a duo from North Texas in which Prickett and Alexander explored a dense, dark, and emotional brand of avant-garde folk music. He was also a member of the last line-up of Ronald Shannon Jackson’s pioneering jazz/funk/punk crossover group The Decoding Society, and played on their final performance, which included two of his compositions. He was a member of Dead To A Dying World during the period that produced the album Litany. During a short period living in Chicago, he played in experimental jazz/ metal collective Asylum, as well as an early incarnation of doom outfit Rabid Rabbit with whom he recorded a couple of releases. Other Dallas rock bands he has been in include The Immaculates, The Falkon, The Black Arm Band, The Black Dotz, and Shanghai 5, among many others.
