ABOUT THE CONCERT

The duo will explore a wide variety of material ranging from jazz standards and famous compositions by Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Cedar Walton, to seldom-heard songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Stowell and Hobbs have been performing concerts together as a duo for more than a decade.

JOHN STOWELL

An internationally known and respected jazz artist with a startlingly original style, John Stowell has been praised for his exceptional artistry:

“Guitarist John Stowell’s style with standards is a delightful departure from the road well-traveled. He transcends the label of jazz guitarist.”

Los Angeles Times…“Stowell made his electric guitar sing beautifully, displaying all the virtuosity that has brought him to the jazz world’s attention in recent years.”

?Coda Magazine, Toronto…“He plays his amplified guitar as if he were surrounded by fine crystal… the type of slow-burning, sustained energy that you hear in players that practice all the time.” – Downbeat
