Born: April 11, 1980 Primary Instrument: Guitar
Outstanding young seven-string guitarist leads his own trio - intellectual, inspired and refreshingly creative.
Jo Caleb is one of the few professional 7-string guitarists in the UK. He is an experienced solo guitarist with a huge solo repertoire. Because of this, he has become a fine accompanist for vocalists, saxophonists and other solo instruments - due in part to the extra bass string which allows him to add a warm depth to his music, but undoubtedly the result of his attentive ear, creative chordal playing and considerate accompanying.
As a band leader, Jo performs typically with a trio or quartet, preferring the expressive environment frequently associated with smaller jazz bands.
