About Rory Stuart :
New York-based jazz guitarist and composer RORY STUART has been called "perhaps THE most innovative straight-ahead jazz guitarist to emerge in years" by Jazz Times. With critically acclaimed recordings as a leader (4 STARS in Downbeat, 10 best of the year in Coda), he has also performed with many legends of jazz: saxophonists from Charlie Rouse to Billy Harper, George Garzone to Steve Coleman's band with Geri Allen and Cassandra Wilson; organ players from Brother Jack McDuff to Dr. Lonnie Smith to Charles Earland to Bill Doggett; and many others including Sheila Jordan and Reggie Workman. The head of the rhythm curriculum at the world-renowned New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, a list of his former students reads like a “Who's Who” of rising young jazz stars (see www.rorystuart.com). Besides performing to sold-out crowds in New York, Rory performs around the USA and around the world – including, in recent years, Argentina, Austria, Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Iceland, India, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Korea, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, with upcoming performances in Greece, Sweden, Germany, and Portugal. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, Meet the Composer grants, and a Fulbright Scholar Award, he has been named as one of the greatest living jazz guitarists (“The Great Jazz Guitarists” by Scott Yanow); the New Yorker calls him a “stunning guitarist.”
