An opportunity to hear three of the world’s greatest jazz guitarists playing not only compelling solo performances but also performing as a duo, with stimulating improvisations, supporting each other, interacting and listening as they create unique shapes and sounds.
Live music from these guitar masters never gets better than this.
GRAMMY® winning guitarist Laurence, flies in from his US base, returning to Pizza Express Jazz Club Dean Street after sold out performances in 2016 and 2018. He is a solo performer, recording artist, composer and arranger. His playing fuses folk, jazz, blues, pop and classical styles, creating a multi-faceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument.
A music graduate of London’s Goldsmith’s College, he was featured guitar soloist with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra before becoming established as a studio musician in the mid-1970’s. First internationally recognised as lead guitarist in Paul McCartney’s Wings, with whom he won a Grammy, Juber has since established himself as world-renowned guitar virtuoso and entertainer.
Juber, known to his fans as LJ, has released 27 solo albums. The latest Downtown, is a collection of standards recorded in one five hour session at Hollywood’s Capitol Studios. Juber has 4 guitar folios in print. The latest, The Evolution of Fingerstyle Guitar was published by Hal Leonard in January 2019.
His LJ Plays The Beatles was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s all-time Top Ten albums. His solo arrangement of The Pink Panther Theme earned him a second Grammy, while his arrangement of Stand By Me was heard nationally in a Diamonds Are Forever commercial.
Here’s an amazing solo version of “All Of Me”
