The John Patitucci Electric Guitar Quartet
DATE: Saturday, Dec. 1, 7:30pm
LOCATION: Starr Theater at Walton Arts Center
Two-time Grammy Award®-winner and fifteen-time Grammy nominee, John Patitucci received world-wide acclaim for his many recordings with Chick Corea’s Elektric Band and Akoustic Band.
His eclectic tastes have pushed him to explore various genres as both a musician and a composer, but it’s his work with jazz luminaries, such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and McCoy Turner, that skyrocketed his first solo recording to the top of the Billboard Jazz charts. Widely regarded as on of the world’s greatest bassists, Patitucci’s latest band finds fresh inspiration in his love of funk and jazz, utilizing two electric guitarists, Adam Rogers and Steve Cardenas, as well as virtuoso Brian Blade on drums and John on his signature electric bass.
