Info for Wes Reimagined



Wes Reimagined is a collection of Wes Montgomery’s timeless tunes, respectfully reinterpreted. Nigel comments, “I haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel in any way – it’s just a kind of “what if?”. The great man’s tunes are played in the same spirit but with a little look at what might have been. So, ‘Leila’ moves from a cool ‘west coast’ vibe to an out and out burner, ‘Far Wes’to a waltz and ‘’Road Song’ from a bossa to a grooving shuffle.”

Nigel Price
Over a career spanning more than 25 years, award winning jazz guitarist Nigel Price has become widely acknowledged as one of the hardest working musicians in the business.

Musically, his blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues sensibility and his mastery of chording continue to delight audiences and fellow musicians alike. His career highlights include a support show for Gladys Knight at The Royal Albert Hall and an appearance on Van Morrison’s recent album Keep Me Singing.

Starting his professional career in his early 20s, Nigel toured Europe with various reggae and funk bands before settling on a solo guitar career and turning his attention to jazz. Citing early influences as Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Nigel honed his craft by attending gigs and sitting in with the players of the time.

Nigel has played on more than 50 albums including 5 as a leader, spent ten years with acid jazz outfit The Filthy Six, was a member of James Taylor’s band for 3 years (with whom he recorded 5 albums) and performed with the legendary David Axelrod. He has also taught at The International Guitar Foundation at King’s Place, London.

He has worked tirelessly to organise his own tours (including a 56 date tour in late 2016) and has picked up a Parliamentary Jazz Award (Best Jazz Ensemble, 2010), a nomination for a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2014) and a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2016) along the way.

Nigel is a regular performer at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club where he has made more than 500 appearances. He released his fifth Organ Trio Album

Heads & Tales Volume 2 in late 2016 to great critical acclaim. He is currently planning a further tour due to start in 2018.

This album contains no booklet.
