Pasquale Grasso - Solo Guitar
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
“The best guitar player I’ve heard in maybe my entire life is floating around now, Pasquale Grasso,” - Pat Metheny, Vintage Guitar Magazine
Born in Italy and now based in New York City, the 30-year- old guitarist has developed an astounding technique and concept informed not by jazz guitarists so much as by bebop pioneers like Powell, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and the classical-guitar tradition. His new digital-only EP series, available beginning in June from Sony Masterworks, showcases Grasso in the solo-guitar format, where his intensive studies of both mid-century jazz and classical meld into a signature mastery that is, remarkably, at once unprecedented and evocative.
