Even the instrumentation can be customized to your wishes. If you love the sound of trombone for example, I can include a wonderful jazz trombonist in the group, or if you would like to have a vocalist, there are several I work with who are all excellent. The point is I am flexible so that I am able put together the best possible jazz music to fit your wishes and your budget. You will be working directly with me the musician rather than going through a booking agent so you will also avoid that added expense and added potential for misunderstandings.
During the last 20 years I have played for hundreds of weddings, corporate functions, and other private events. If you are unsure what would work best or would like help making choices, I am happy to share my experience. I can always suggest what I know has proven to be the most suitable configuration for an event similar to yours. One thing you can be sure of is you will be getting the finest jazz music in the area.
I and my groups are also available for concert settings. I have performed internationally both solo and with my ensembles in concerts and at major jazz festivals.
Please scroll down the page below to find audio and video samplers of many of the configurations I can provide for you. In each of the samplers I have combined short excerpts of several songs in different styles such as swing, bossa, ballads, funky, and bebop to demonstrate the range of jazz music each configuration can play.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Solo jazz guitar is one of my favorite ways of performing. My repertoire includes hundreds of great jazz compositions and tunes from the classic American composers such as Gershwin, Porter, Ellington, Kern, Arlen, Dennis, Rogers and more. I play a mix of swing, ballads, bossa-nova's and anything else I can think of. Solo jazz guitar is perfect for filling a space with lush gentle music that can be heard all around the room without being too loud anywhere. The video below is a sampler of several tunes showcasing a variety of the kinds of songs you'd hear me performing on solo guitar.
