Following on from the Nigel Price Trio, who are set to play Scarborough Jazz Club this Wednesday, is guitarist Jamie Taylor.

Jamie, who will perform at the Cask on Wednesday October 17, maintains a busy schedule and has worked with leading UK musicians across a range of styles such as Adrian Ingram, Alan Barnes, Jim Mullen, Steve Brown, Tori Freestone, Gary Potter and Carlos Lopez-Real.

He regularly collaborates with pianist/band leader Jamil Sheriff and vocalist Sarah Mitchell, with whom he has recorded on the Candid label.

He leads his own quartet Java which also features Jamil on piano.

Jamie is a principal lecturer at The Leeds College of Music teaching jazz guitar and musicianship on the BA Hons degree programme.

Currently he is electric guitar advisor and examiner for Yorkshire Young Musicians.

Having taught jazz exclusively at degree level for more than ten years, Jamie is one of the country’s most experienced tutors in the idiom, and many of his students have gone on to successful careers.

Jamie will be backed by the Mike Gordon Trio on Wednesday.

The music starts at 8.45pm.
