Bob Shimizu

Introducing “Lets Get Together” the latest release from jazz-guitarist Bob Shimizu.

“Let's Get Together”, Shimizu's second solo release, is a celebration of the song-book of a life-time and a musical journey that pays homage to jazz standards and selections from the great American pop and rock song-books.

Produced by veteran Clarke Rigsby (Joey DeFrancesco, Jimmy Smith, Tower Of Power) the album features Shimizu's Arizona-based quartet including Mario Mendivil (elec. bass), Lamar Gaines (piano, Wurlitzer, Clavinet), Mike Florio (drums) and Todd Chuba (percussion) as well as a vocal cameo by singer-songwriter Obadiah Parker (Grandma's Hands), who lends grit and soul to the session.
