Over a career spanning more than 25 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. 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.
He has worked tirelessly to organise his own tours (including a 56 date tour in late 2016) and has picked up a Parliamentary Jazz Award (Best Jazz Ensemble, 2010), a nomination for a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2014) and a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2016) along the way. Nigel is a regular performer at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club where he has made more than 500 appearances.
He has recently released a new CD “Wes Reimagined” to great acclaim, with 4-star reviews in BBC Music Magazine, Jazzwise and many more. The album features the trio plus guest saxophonists and strings, you can have a listen and even purchase it on Bandcamp.
Nigel is joined by one of the UK’s finest pianists and organists Ross Stanley plus the awesome drumming of Joel Barford.
At time of writing Nigel is waiting to hear if he is to receive Arts Council funding, if successful the band will be expanded to a quartet with saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos.
