October 2nd – Sunday, 4:30 to 6:30 pm
In the tradition of the famed Massey Hall concert in Toronto in 1952, where our patron saint Charlie Parker had to be billed as “Charlie Chan” for contractual reasons, we must not name the performer gracing our stage today…
However, trust that he is a performer of extraordinary repute in his lovely and intricate profession of solo acoustic jazz guitar, “one of the most highly regarded fingerstyle guitarists of his generation,” with a repertoire that “spans the entire history of the music from ragtime through swing to modern masters like Thelonious Monk and Herbie Nichols to free improvisation”…
Various critics named his album “Spinning Song” among the best jazz records of 1997 in Cadence and Coda magazines, and it placed high on the Cadence reader’s poll of that year. Acoustic Guitar magazine dubbed it “one of the best guitar records ever recorded – by anybody.”
