We are very happy to present a workshop with one of Europe's (and indeed, the world's) finest jazz guitarists, Jesse Van Ruller. Since winning the Thelonious Monk International Guitar Competition in 1995 —impressing the jury of Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Jim Hall, Pat Martino and Mark Whitfield — he has released over ten albums, toured worldwide and worked with Christian McBride, Joe Lovano, Toots Thielemans, Tom Harrell, Roy Hargrove, Peter Bernstein, Vincent Herring, the Metropole Orchestra and the WDR Big Band. Jesse rarely performs here in the UK. He is over to play two gigs at Oliver's on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th April and we're really pleased that he's giving his time to share some of his knowledge and experience with our group. This workshop is open to all abilities.

You are encouraged to bring a guitar (but this is by no means necessary) and plenty of questions. We always try to find time in the workshops for one or two people to get up and play with the guest tutor, but there is no pressure to perform. Places for the workshop are priced at £20. Clicking through to our Meetup page will enable you pay via PayPal to secure your place. I am able to offer a discounted rate of £15 for students. If you want to claim the student rate, please email me directly at [email protected] to make arrangements. Please note that places can only be booked via the London Jazz Guitar Society. Our hire venue, GreenwichWest Community and Arts Centre, is not involved in promotion or ticket sales for this event. Due to the venue size, numbers for this workshop will be capped and I would encourage you to book your place in good time to avoid disappointment.

Jesse is in town to play two nights at Oliver’s on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th. With Conor Chaplin (b) andLyttle (dr). Details below:
