Lou Volpe

Accomplished guitarist, Lou Volpe, has released his first Standard album of his career “Remembering Ol’ Blue Eyes”, (songs of Sinatra). Receiving rave reviews, it combines influences of jazz, bossa nova, blues and swing into his legendary unique sound. A native New Yorker, Lou Volpe is a standard not only on the New York music scene, but also recognized internationally as a master of the guitar. His artistry is combined with elegance, fire and soul coupled with a seductive, lyrical sound. Volpe’s empathetic virtuosity has allowed him to work in a wide variety of musical contexts while developing a unique approach to the guitar – a warm and lyric romanticism that illuminates the worlds of Jazz, R&B and Adult Contemporary
