About The Music

Robben Ford - Robben Ford is one of the premiere electric guitarists today, particularly known for his blues playing. A four-time Grammy nominee, he has played with artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Witherspoon, Miles Davis, George Harrison, Phil Lesh, Bonnie Raitt, Claus Ogerman, Michael McDonald, and many others.

Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band - As leader of the most popular Latin jazz group in the world today, Poncho Sanchez's congas and seasoned ensemble spin vivacious tales that pay homage to the glories of a half-century tradition that was born when Afro-Cuban rhythms merged with bebop.

Laurence Juber with Guitar Noir - Featuring Jeff Stern (percussion) and Domenic Genova (bass). As a young working musician in London, England in the 1970s, Laurence Juber got an extraordinary break when Paul McCartney picked him to become Wings' lead guitarist. After Wings disbanded, Juber embarked on a career as a solo artist, composer and arranger, developing a reputation as a Grammy winning world-class guitar virtuoso.
