Upcoming Events

    Friday, February 24th 7:00 PM
Paul Bollenback
Paul Bollenback on Guitar, Noriko Ueda on Bass.
Guitar master George Benson, a long-time supporter, has described Bollenback’s work as “bona-fide playing, unambiguous, up-front and powerful,” calling him “a versatile dynamo on guitar. His approach to jazz and blues has a uniqueness unto itself”. That comment has special resonance in that Bollenback counts Benson high among his wide range of influences; these also include Carlos Santana, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, John McLaughlin, Johnny Winter, and Jimi Hendrix (among guitarists), as well as such giants of improvisation and composition as pianists Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans, and saxists Wayne Shorter and John Coltrane.
