Two internationally respected jazz guitarists come together in this special night of music. Libor and Nigel met in 2019 and got on like a house on fire on a short tour of the UK. It’s time for the reunion!
Their shared love of soulful, grooving straight ahead jazz will make for a fabulous night of mellifluous improvisation. Expect works from the great guitarists of yesteryear, as well as selections from the American songbook. Tonight they time up with the astonishing double bass player Geoff Gascoyne (Jamie Cullum, Michel Legrand and just about anyone who’s anyone!)
Libor Šmoldas is a Prague based jazz guitarist and composer who has worked and recorded with international stars such as George Mraz, Jeff Ballard, Sam Yahel, Bobby Watson, Adam Nussbaum, Brian Charette, Jay Anderson and James Morrison. He has recorded seven albums as a leader, and has toured the world multiple times in esteemed company, most recently with Australian trumpet star James Morrison.
Nigel is one of the most highly regarded and in demand guitarists on the UK jazz scene today. He spent three years with UK funk legends – ‘The James Taylor Quartet’, was voted No.1 in the 2016 British Jazz Awards for “best guitarist” and is also a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s, where he’s played around 600 times.
His blend of flowing bebop lines and deep blues feeling has made him popular with jazz, blues and funk audiences across the World.
“Nigel Price is probably the most dynamic and gifted guitarist on the British jazz scene today and this is the proof.”
