Two of the greatest jazz guitarists in the world, Martin Taylor & Ulf Wakenius, have joined forces for an unforgettable live show. They bring with them a unique legacy in European jazz from years of touring and recording alongside Stephane Grappelli and Oscar Peterson. Martin worked with Stephane Grappelli for 11 years, filling the guitar chair of Django Reinhardt, while Ulf Wakenius worked with Oscar Peterson for 10 years, following on from Joe Pass, Herb Ellis and Barney Kessel.

A multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed guitarist with an inimitable style, Martin Taylor is recognised as the world’s foremost exponent of solo jazz guitar playing, receiving a record 14 British Jazz Awards as well as the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Heart of Jazz Award, while in 2002 he was made an MBE for services to jazz. Ulf has topped the US jazz charts twice with bass icon Ray Brown and was one half of Scandinavia’s most celebrated guitar duo Guitars Unlimited.

Martin and Ulf have also collaborated with greats including Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Mike Brecker, Jamie Cullum, Ray Brown and Michel Legrand to name just a few.
