Nigel Price Organ Trio is a perfect example of this exciting format, guitar (Nigel), Hammond organ (Ross Stanley playing a REAL Hammond) and drums (Matt Home), so much so that he led his organ trio to pick up the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Award for “best jazz ensemble. For this tour he is joined by sax man Vasilis Xenopoulos to add even more soul to the mix.
Nigel is one of the most highly regarded and in demand guitarists on
the UK jazz scene today. He spent three years with UK funk legends - the James Taylor Quartet, placed third in the 2014 British Jazz Awards for “best guitarist” and is
also a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s, where he has played over 400
times. His blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues feeling and mastery of
chording has made him instantly accessible and popular with jazz audiences.
“There’s an exhilarating tight-loose swing and old-school honestly about Price’s brand of soul-bop that leaves you panting” – Mojo
“Very few players could manage playing as fluent, imaginative and technically impeccable guitar as Price does here” – Evening Standard
“The neatness, tidiness and tightness of this band at full tilt in numbers like SOS by Wes Montgomery and Mozambique by Nigel Price was compelling. But they can also do low-down and loose. Price does skittering flautando harmonics disappearing up the fingerboard as well as any guitarist in the UK.” – LondonJazz
“Nigel Price is a blazing guitar player. He has serious chops and is able to demonstrate them wonderfully in the context of the standard repertoire.” Just Jazz Guitar
