Picture if you will, a relaxed ambient setting, the lights turned down low, and the soothing sound of jazz filling the air; that jazz, courtesy of Art B., a New England based jazz guitarist that has been sparking interest and turning heads since arriving on the local music scene several years ago. What makes this musician so unique is his well thought out arrangements, and the creative intertwining of musical ideas on each piece he plays. Not one to rely on electronic devices to create background accompaniment, Art possesses a sophisticated harmonic sense and the ability to create melody lines, rhythm and bass figures, and when appropriate, percussion sounds which adds fullness not usually associated with unaccompanied guitar. Art will also employ a 21 string harp-guitar that will surely add a unique and elegant flavor to your special day.
Whether it is a modern take on jazz standard or a jazzy twist on a popular tune, his complete mastery of 'fingerstyle' technique brings a remarkable new quality to the art of solo guitar playing.
