“A masterful performance of jazz guitar duets, from the comfort and safety of your own home…”

The Oxley – Meier Guitar project began working in earnest, following their second release in 2015, ‘Chasing Tales’, which was supported by three tours, totaling 90 dates. Pete and Nick then toured the UK and Europe a further three times, promoting ‘The Colours of Time’, also performing at several major jazz festivals over this time.

Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of latin America to English pastoralism. Hear this played on nylon string, steel string, electric, 12 string, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more!

For their live gigs, the Oxley-Meier Guitar Project aim to entertain by playing with a spontaneity and an intuitive interplay between them that keeps them fresh and fired up from gig to gig. The duo therefore comes to the performance with what they hope are the audiences anticipations: to expect the unexpected!

Nicolas Meier ~ Guitar
With his unique style that is a blend of Metheny-esque jazz and Turkish inspired world music, Nick has toured extensively around the world with his band the Meier Group. This wonderful band (featuring sax maestro Gilad Atzmon and Dave O’Higgins) won the overall prize for ‘best band’ at the Juan-les-Pins jazz festival!

​His recent album Kismet is a wonderful heady mixture of Flamenco, jazz, Latin and Middle Eastern music. His prodigious jazz talent is matched by his other great passion: playing heavy metal guitar in his scorching group ‘Seven7’.

​Nick was, for the last three years, guitarist in guitar supremo, Jeff Beck’s band, with whom he toured all over the world, performing at major venues and festivals. He has recently recorded a stunning album with the A-lister rhythm section of Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets) and Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting, Frank Zappa etc).

Pete Oxley  ~ Guitar  

Pete began his musical career in Paris in the mid ‘80s before relocating to the UK in 1997. Shortly afterwards he opened The Spin jazz club in Oxford which in 2012 won the Parliamentary jazz award as ‘The Best Jazz Venue In The UK’. Pete regularly performs with some of the world’s leading jazz artists including Chris Garrick, Gilad Atzmon, Tim Whitehead, Dave O’Higgins, John Etheridge and his own band Curious Paradise. He has now released 14 critically acclaimed CDs featuring his original compositions.

As a composer, Pete was selected as one of only a handful of British jazz musicians to have his compositions included in the definitive ‘European Real Book’ (Sher Music).

“Virtuosity across a range of guitars and guitar-related instruments…creating a sense of calm serenity.”

All About Jazz, March 2015

“[Chasing Tales]…turns out to be one of the best guitar albums you will hear all year”

London Evening Standard, February 2015

“Two masterly guitarists creating an array of changing moods.”

Daily Telegraph

“The sheer depth of the album is outstanding. Looking at the listed personnel for this album blew my mind. Not only do Oxley and Meier have writing credits for eleven of the twelve tracks but they also play all the instruments that bring them to life. The fact that it only takes two men to achieve the beauty and warmth of Chasing Tales is a true testament to their level of ability and talent.” ~ Review by Ben Calverley (excerpt)

Pat Sprakes (Jazz Guitar)

Having been inspired by the likes of George Benson and Wes Montgomery, Pat switched to jazz from the classical guitar at the age of 17. He turned professional in 1991 and began gigging with Tony Kofi and Pat McCarthy in Nottingham and throughout the UK. During his career, Pat has also worked alongside the likes of Darius Brubeck, Jim Mullen, Nigel Price, Karen Sharp, Alan Barnes and has supported the Ronnie Scott Quintet, Jazz Crusaders and appeared at Edinburgh International Jazz Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival and many other festivals nationally.

Pat has a broad stylistic palette, taking elements of the fingerstyle of Joe Pass through to the driving swing styles of Wes Montgomery and George Benson, taking in Bireli Lagrene along the way. He has many other wider influences, particularly that of Bossa Nova and other Brazilian guitar styles, having mastered this to become, in one singer’s words “The Bossa King”.

 

Wendy Kirkland (Jazz Piano) 

Music began for Kirkland at home. Her mother paid for formal piano lessons for her and her sister, and they worked through all the grades; but the inspiration came from her father, who played piano and organ in social clubs as backing for guest singers and musicians. Later, at university, she graduated as an engineer and worked in that capacity. But jazz had always been ticking away in the background from an early age. Playing through transcriptions of Dave Brubeck and Harry Stoneham when she was 14, she decided she preferred the sound of jazz harmonies to classical. By 19 she was playing in pubs and clubs and for dance classes. Oscar Peterson transcriptions followed, developing Wendy more into a jazz pianist, and she continued working as a sideman before being persuaded to sing by another musician. Then in 2017 her Piano Divas album broke on the scene and garnered rave reviews in The Guardian, Jazzwise, Jazz Journal and others. In 2019 her second album The Music’s On Me was even more enthusiastically received and played on national stations all over the world.

Comparisons to Diana Krall, Blossom Dearie and Nina Simone followed, although she would not claim to attempt to copy them, as mentioned in Jazz Journal. Piano first, voice second is how Wendy sees herself as a musician.

Jim Mullen agrees, stating – “Wendy is proof that great musicians are alive and kicking all around the UK and that they don’t have to be products of our music colleges to create high quality, entertaining music”.

Get a complimentary digital download of Wendy’s album The Music’s On Me with every ticket purchase!

Described as ‘the unsung heroine of British Jazz’ by The Jazz Mann and ‘mellow and Stylish’ by the Sunday Times, Kirkland continues to consolidate her status as a force on the international circuit. Her new album, ‘The Music’s On Me’, is a selection of original and lyricised pieces Kirkland having written her own words to songs by Michel Petrucciani (‘September Second’), Russell Malone (‘Playground’), Wes Montgomery (‘West Coast Blues’) and Don Grolnick (‘Pools’) alongside her own compositions. Joining her long term collaborators Pat Sprakes on guitar, Paul Jefferies on bass and Steve Wyndham on drums are guest musicians Tommaso Starace on sax and Roger Beaujolais on vibraphone.

Elina Duni is a Swiss-Albanian singer. Having been signed to ECM Records since 2012, her hallmark combination of traditional Albanian folk songs and jazz has lead to worldwide critical acclaim.

For this new project, she is joined by jazz guitarist Rob Luft, acclaimed as one of the rising stars of London’s flourishing contemporary jazz scene. Luft’s playing incorporates echoes of West African high-life, English folk and indie rock, and his joyously original sound finds an ideal counterpart in Elina Duni’s vocals. Together, they steer us on a journey through timeless folk songs which still resonate so truly today.
