James Chadwick

Guitarist James Chadwick approaches his music in a distinctive and thoughtful way, blending ever evolving melodic lines with inventive and measured harmonic treatment. He is an excellent guitarist who eschews flashy technical runs for angular Monk-ish lines and an ethereal sound reminiscent of Bill Frisell. He makes standard tunes sound very fresh by leaving lots of space and creating unexpected textures. His superbly presented debut album “Undercurrent” displays his own inimitable style. -

..... The album Wacahume will be released soon on 33 Records (recorded at Oakfield Studios Newport S Wales)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
