The Hampstead Jazz Club is pleased to announce a partnership with PizzaExpress Live, to present select shows at PizzaExpress Live in Soho.

The venue for this event is PizzaExpress, 10 Dean St, London W1D 3RW

Hampstead Jazz Club  in partnership with PizzaExpress Live , proudly present London’s very own guitar maestro Michael John Ross and his band performing Part 2 of the Great Guitarist’s Songbook, with music by Larry Carlton, Jeff Beck, John Scofield and more. 2023 saw The MJR band play the Great Guitarists Song Book Part 1 to a sell-out audience at PizzaExpress Soho. He returns to Dean Street for the next chapter in this special one-off performance alongside some of London’s finest musicians.

The Great Guitarists Songbook Part 2 is a natural evolution from last year’s shows. This second chapter delivers a stylish tribute to some of the outstanding virtuoso players of past and present as well as the lesser-known guitarists who shaped the sound of recording artists such as Joni Mitchell and Steely Dan.

Michael John Ross emerged on London’s soul, funk, and acid jazz scene in the late 90’s before establishing himself as one of the UK’s top session players. His career has seen him work with the likes of Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, Peter Green from Fleetwood Mac, Simon Le Bon and Joan Jett. In 2019 he co-wrote, produced, and performed the stage show Seven Decades ‘ the story of the electric guitar’. The show became the first ever live performance of its kind to be commissioned by the V & A. Described by the Sunday Times as “A hugely impressive live music spectacular”..
