Jon Bremen

There is no shortage of great guitarists in Los Angeles, but Jon Bremen is finding a personalized approach amidst the bustling LA music scene. Jon was bit by the bebop bug as a teenager and dedicated several years to learning the musical the language of Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Clifford Brown, etc. His curiosity eventually lead him to study music at some of the most prestigious music schools including Indiana University and the University of Southern California. “When I moved to LA, I was instantly humbled and inspired by the musicians around me.

”Jon Bremen is a rare and gifted musician who possesses a unique ability to craft improvisational melody into pure magic. Students of jazz guitar and all instruments would be well served by studying his improvisations. Jon is also a talented composer and I believe he will be recognized as a leader in the new generation of modern jazz guitarists” -Pat Kelley

“Guitarist Jon Bremen's warm clear sound and bop articulation are rooted in the tradition of Jimmy Raney and Tal Farlow, but he has his own voice as an improviser and composer. He has chops to burn, but he uses them with taste and discretion and knows the value of space and breath in the music. I look forward to hearing more from him.” -John Stowell
