Nigel Price Organ Trio
Hideaway welcomes back award winning jazz guitarist Nigel Price and his Organ Trio, currently on their UK tour, for one fantastic night of bluesy swing and bebop.
“The skillful Price lovingly celebrated Montgomery's languidly bluesy lyricism and breezy swing, and the group heated up this 50 year-old style with an irresistible conviction.” - The Guardian
“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
