Mike Stern/Dave Weckl band ft Tom Kennedy and Bob Malach
LONDON Ronnie Scott’s
47 Frith Street, Soho
No-holds-barred jazz-rock is the name of the game when fusion heavy hitters Stern and Weckl combine guitar and drum pyrotechnics with saxophonist Bob Malach and bassist Tom Kennedy.
One of the most esteemed electric guitarists of his generation, Mike Stern has distinguished himself over a four-decade career that has encompassed musical partnerships with Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, the Brecker Brothers and Joe Henderson, as well as 16 recordings as a leader (six of which were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards).
An electrifying soloist whose blistering chops combine rock-fusion firepower with sophisticated jazz harmonies and his inherently bluesy string bending prowess, Stern has the ability to instantly elevate the proceedings on any gig or session he plays by channeling the spirits of his own personal guitar heroes Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall and Albert King.
