Nigel is an award-winning guitarist who is regularly seen hosting the late night jam sessions at Ronnie Scott's. He is one of the most prolific touring jazz musicians in the UK, which has led him to play at virtually every jazz club and festival in the country attracting huge acclaim wherever he plays. Tonight he joins alto saxophonist Allison Neale, whose beautifully crafted West Coast style evokes the spirit of Paul Desmond and Art Pepper, with whom she has a particular affinity. The quartet is completed by Simon Thorpe on double bass and drummer Emiliano Caroselli.

This gig forms part of an extensive UK and European tour which showcases performances on everything from nylon string acoustic, to steel string, to electric, to 12 string, to fretless and glissentar, and more! Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of Latin America to English pastoralism.
