Nigel Price is widely acknowledged as one of the most creative musicians in the business, and one of the most entertaining jazz guitarists you’ll see anywhere in the world! Musically, his blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues sensibility and his mastery of chording continue to delight audiences and fellow musicians alike. He cites early influences as Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. His career highlights include a support show for Gladys Knight at The Royal Albert Hall and an appearance on Van Morrison’s recent album Keep Me Singing.
