*Socially distanced show*
Over a career spanning more than 25 years, award-winning jazz guitarist Nigel Price is one of the hardest working musicians in the business. He has more than 50 UK tours under his belt, appeared more than 500 times at Ronnie Scott’s and played on more than 50 albums.
Musically, his blend of bebop, blues and mastery of the guitar continue to delight audiences and fellow musicians alike. He was awarded a Parliamentary Jazz Award (Best Jazz Ensemble, 2010), a nomination for a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2014) and a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2016).
Nigel toured Europe with various reggae and funk bands before settling on a solo guitar career and turning his attention to jazz. Citing early influences as Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Nigel honed his craft by attending gigs and sitting in with the players of the time.
He spent ten years with acid jazz outfit The Filthy Six, was a member of James Taylor Quartet for 3 years (with whom he recorded 5 albums) and performed with the legendary David Axelrod. He has also taught at The International Guitar Foundation at King’s Place, London.
Tenor saxophonist, Vasilis Xenopoulos will make a guest appearance bringing great energy and fiery passion to the mix. He brings, as one reviewer notes, “old school warmth and modern day dynamism”.
