Nigel Price, winner of the British Jazz Award for best guitarist in 2016, is a regular at Ronnie Scott’s and spent three years with the James Taylor Quartet.
Tonight he plays as part of The XPQ, alongside the hugely popular virtuoso saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos. The pair established a strong musical partnership through their shared stylistic and artistic connections, having met on the London jazz scene.
This exciting and dynamic band pays homage to some of the greatest historical guitar/saxophone collaborations such as Jim Hall/Sonny Rollins, Wes Montgomery/Johnny Griffin, Kenny Burrell/Stanley Turrentine, Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd and from the UK jazz scene Dave Cliff/Geoff Simkins and the legendary Morrissey/Mullen.
This event is taking place at the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton, as part of Buxton International Festival’s Big BIF Weekend, with a stellar line up of book, music and jazz events to enjoy on the 15 and 16 October.
