Guitarist 2
This guitarist began teaching himself the guitar at age 12. He initially played acoustic Blues and early Country music, then, after hearing Charlie Christian on a Benny Goodman record, he discovered Jazz. He became a professional musician in 1987 and soon began to specialise in acoustic Rhythm guitar playing in the style of George Van Eps, Allan Reuss, Steve Jordan and Freddie Green. He has since accompanied many American and British musicians including; Scott Hamilton, Enrico Tomasso, John Barnes, Kenny Davern, Diz Disley, Bobby Wellins, Stacey Kent, Vince Giordano, Ken Peplowski, Dave Shepherd, Mike Piggott, Keith Nichols and, in his opinion, the greatest living Rhythm guitar player, Marty Grosz. He has also played with Martin Wheatleys' Arcadians and Paul Laceys' Back to Basie Orchestra.
