Les Fish

After two decades of global touring and live concerts, Boston guitarist/composer Les Fish has created his first two CD projects: the funky jazz disc Other Spaces and the Afro-Cuban Les Fish and the Latin Jazz Cats.

As a teenager in the 1970s, Fish played guitar in various rock bands throughout the greater Boston area. He performed jazz-rock influenced original compositions in

shows from the North Shore to Cape Cod. While enrolled at Berklee College of Music, Fish formed his own jazz fusion group, and made money splitting his time between teaching guitar, nightclub gigs and recording jingles for local television stations. After attending Berklee, and studying with jazz guitar greats Mick Goodrick and Barry Galbraith, Fish joined up with future wife Lori Starr to form the band Amante. Touring full time for 18 years, Amante worked top hotels around the world and still performs throughout New England. “The band covered everything from bebop and sambas to pop dance tunes,” said Fish. “While at Berklee, I had fallen in love with Brazilian rhythms, and started writing bossa novas and sambas.”
