The eloquent guitarist Nigel Price returns to SJN at The Hive with a superb band including Ross Stanley (organ), the ever popular Steve Brown (drums) and long-time collaborator Vasilis Xenopoulos (tenor sax). Influenced by Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass & John McLaughlin Nigel is a fluent and soulful player equally at home with blues, funk, bebop and ballads. All of the band are regulars at Ronnie Scotts so expect an evening of brilliant jazz, full of warmth, imagination and conviction.
“Whilst I am not normally a fan of straight ahead jazz I found myself drawn in by the sheer musicianship and charisma of this band…can’t wait until their next appearance.”... Hive audience member Sept 2018
‘’...the skilful Price lovingly celebrated Montgomery’s languidly bluesy lyricism and breezy swing, and the group heated up this 50 year-old style with an irresistible conviction.”.... John Fordham, The Guardian
