Jazz at the "House" Presents - Guitarist Brian Nova
Concord Recording Artist Brian Nova is considered one of the top Jazz Guitarists/Vocalists in the nation, according to a recent poll in Jazz Improv Magazine. Joe Pass said of Nova: ‘I feel Brian is one of the finest Jazz Guitarists on the scene!’ He combines a rare mixture of melodic jazz guitar and eloquent vocals and has the distinction of being the only guitarist who was mentored by and toured with the two titans of Jazz guitar: Herb Ellis and Joe Pass. Rock Icon Steve Miller says: ‘I’ve met and known a lot of guitarists in my career, and ‘B’ is the best guitarist I’ve ever met.’ Nova performs and records as a solo artist with his Trio, Quartet, and his 12-piece Big Band. Brian is on Arturo Sandoval’s Grammy® Award-winning CD ‘Dear Diz’, which garnered a Grammy® and 3 Latin Grammys® in 2013.
