NIGEL PRICE ORGAN TRIO FEAT. VASILIS XENOPOULOS Nigel Price is a highly skilled guitarist as well as an accomplished composer whose swinging bebop approach combined with flawless control is a delight to hear. He has played on more than 50 albums, spent ten years with acid jazz outfit the Filthy Six, was a member of James Taylor’s jazz/funk band for 3 years and has played at Ronnie Scott’s over 600 times. As leader, he has recorded 9 albums, including six with his own Organ Trio which received the Parliamentary Jazz Award for Best Jazz Ensemble and the British Jazz Award for ‘Best Small Group’. For this 606 live stream Nigel and the band will be playing selections from their vast back catalogue, as well as music from the as yet unreleased 'Wes Re-Imagined' which sees the compositions of Wes Montgomery reworked into different feels. And what a band it is – described by Nigel as providing a “hard hitting, immediate and undiluted message” it features one of the UK’s top UK Hammond organ players Ross Stanley (‘the absolute don’) along with the ‘effervescent and absurdly groovy’ drummer Joel Barford. They will be joined by their frequent collaborator, Berklee-educated Greek saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos, whose melodic approach takes its inspiration from bebop greats such as Dexter Gordon. This foursome is truly a force to be reckoned with.
“Very few players could manage playing as fluent, imaginative and technically impeccable guitar as Price” Evening Standard; “For brilliance of execution I can’t imagine anyone surpassing either set, but this is not just for guitar buffs. Inventiveness, originality & ensemble playing are terrific too” Guardian; “[Price] Ace guitarist. Full blooded, hard swinging solos” Evening Standard; “Xenopoulos...One of the most fiery...saxophonists around” The Times
