Guitarist Remi Harris has been receiving rave reviews for over a decade, since emerging from the seething jazz hotspots of Herefordshire. Blessed as he is with a formidable technique and a genuine love of the music, his star is firmly in the ascendant.
‘An extraordinary musician’ (Jamie Cullum), Remi is a virtuoso whose unique style draws inspiration from artists such as Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery – one of the most influential American jazz guitarists of the twentieth century – Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac) and Led Zeppelin, and from blues specialists Stevie Ray Vaughan and Freddie King.
Remi has been performing with Tom Moore for over ten years, during which time they have developed a remarkable musical affinity. Since graduating from The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Tom has performed around the UK and has appeared at prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall and The North Sea Jazz Festival, and more recently supporting Jools Holland.
This duo setting showcases an eclectic mix of gypsy swing, jazz, blues, rock, flamenco and world music; jazz standards, improvisations, original compositions and new arrangements of his favourite tunes.
