Nigel Price’s Wes Revisited

-

Some fifty-four years after Wes Montgomery passed, his music and playing still inspire musicians and listeners. Wes’ music puts a smile on faces with its blend of bebop and blues. The music is sometimes simple, full of interest and always accessible.

Over a career spanning more than twenty-five years, award-winning jazz guitarist Nigel Price has become widely acknowledged as one of the hardest working musicians in the business. Musically, his blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues sensibility and his mastery of chording continue to delight audiences and fellow musicians alike.

This band is a celebration of Montgomery; they are not a tribute band. There is room for every one of these excellent musicians to solo and shine, honouring not copying Montgomery.

Nigel Price’s Wes Revisited will take place at Fleece Jazz, at Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel on Wednesday 28th September 2022. Featuring Nigel Price – Guitar; Vasilis Xenopoulos – Tenor sax; Ross Stanley – Organ; Amiliano Caroselli – Drums.

“When the players are Vasilis Xenopoulos and Nigel Price . . . the outcome is downright irresistible”
– The Guardian ****
