The Wichita Jazz Festival continues its on-going jazz concert series at Roxy's Downtown on Monday May 22, 2016 at 8pm with guitarist, composer and bandleader Horace Bray and his trio.

The concert is a celebration for the release of his new album, Dreamscape, on May 20th, two days before his performance in Wichita.

He was a member of the Jazz St. Louis All-Stars, the Missouri All-Suburban and All-State jazz bands, and was the guitarist for the Birch Creek Jazz Ambassadors. He moved to Denton to study at the acclaimed University of North Texas in 2010. While there he played with the UNT Jazz Singers, the 4 O'Clock Lab Band, the 2 O'Clock Lab Band, and was the first undergraduate guitarist in 15 years to hold the guitar chair in the prestigious One O'Clock Lab Band. Horace has played with Ross Pederson, Adam Larson, The Cookers, Robert "Sput" Searight, and Peter Eldridge. He graduated from UNT in 2015 and regularly performs with Sky Window and with his own Horace Bray Group.

Herb Ellis – Jazz Guitar Music Legend

Herb Ellis – Jazz Guitar Music Legend

Herb Ellis like many other leading American jazz guitarists (including Charlie Christian, Eddie Durham, and Oscar Moore) was born in the south western part of the the USA. The blues, with a touch of country music, are a distinctive feature of his jazz guitar music sound and his guitar playing technique. This is most certainly due to the environment in which Ellis was brought up. Herb Ellis first played the banjo, although it is claimed he played the harmonica at the age of four, and took up the guitar at the age of ten. While he was at high school he played alto horn in the school band. Ellis studied at the North Texas State College and helped start a jazz guitar music program there. He met and befriended many now well known jazz musicians while at this college including Jimmy Giuffre, Gene Roland, and Harry Babasin.

Herb graduated in 1941 and joined Glen Gray’s band. In 1945 he joined the Jimmy Dorsey Big Band touring and performing with them for three years. Following this, Ellis formed his own instrumental / vocal trio called “The Softwinds”. This group, which featured Lou Carter on Piano and Johnny Frigo on bass, played together for five years. During this time Herb wrote several successful tunes including “Detour Ahead” and “I Told You I Love You – Now Get Out”. Ellis’s jazz guitar talent first became internationally recognized in 1953 when he took over from jazz guitarist Barney Kessel in the Oscar Peterson Trio. There is no doubt that during his five year stay with Peterson, and his subsequent four years accompanying the renowned jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, Ellis developed his musical abilities as a soloist and accompanist to the fullest. It was during this time that he also began a long association and friendship with bass player Ray Brown.

Following that time Herb Ellis led a career as one of the busiest jazz guitarists on the international jazz music scene. Over the years he played and recorded with “The Great Guitars”, a group that included pickstyle jazz guitarist Barney Kessel and fingerstyle jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd, in a duo with jazz guitarist Joe Pass, and as leader of his own trios and quartets. Although for many years Ellis worked in the Los Angeles studio scene and was a regular member of the Don Trenner Band on the popular ‘Steve Allen Show’, he later returned to a life devoted to jazz guitar music once again appearing and recording regularly with Oscar Peterson. Herb died on March 28th, 2010 but fortunately for aspiring guitarists, he released several jazz guitar tab books and DVD courses that teach his single note improvised solos and chord melody solos as well as the guitar techniques he used to play them.

Peabody Conservatory trained guitarist Steven Herron helps people succeed at becoming better guitar players. His company ChordMelody.com features an enormous, unique selection of jazz guitar tab as well as guitar books and instructional DVDs by Herb Ellis himself.

Ron Eschete – Jazz Guitar Music Master

Ron Eschete – Jazz Guitar Music Master

Jazz guitarist Ron Eschete was born in 1948 in Houma, Louisiana and not surprisingly his early influences were jazz guitar masters Jim Hall, Howard Roberts, and Wes Montgomery. After receiving his first guitar at the age of 14, Eschete joined a quartet and was working clubs in Louisiana before he had even graduated from high school playing jazz guitar music. He attended Loyola University where he majored in classical guitar and minored in flute. While there he studied with classical guitarist Paul Guma. Shortly after Eschete left Loyola he was tapped to tour with Buddy Greco. While on tour with Greco, Eschete set his sites on the Los Angeles music scene. In 1970 Eschete relocated to California working and recording with vibraphonist Dave Pike. Then in 1975 he joined forces with pianist Gene Harris and quickly establish his reputation as a premier jazz guitar accompanist.

Over the decades Ron Eschete has worked with the greatest artists in jazz including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Diana Krall, Dizzy Gillespie, Milt Jackson, Ray Brown, and many more! Eschete has appreared on The Tonight Show with Diana Krall, The Merv Griffin Show with The Mort Lindsey Orchestra, and The Mike Douglas Show with Buddy Greco. He has played nearly every notable jazz venue in the southern California area including The Catalina Bar and Grill, The Jazz Bakery, Steamers, Donte’s, Carmelo’s, The Parisian Room, and The Lighthouse to name but a few. He has toured extensively and has played major venues from New York to San Francisco.

Eschete cites a 1988 gig in San Diego as a critical turning point in his career. There he began to shed his reputation as the quintessential sideman – he stepped to the center of the stage and began exploring original material. Long considered to be one of the finest guitarists in mainstream jazz by musicians and listeners alike, he has now taken over the reins and “innovative leader” might be a better name says preeminent jazz critic Zan Stewart. In 1994 he released his first solo recording for Concord Jazz Records called “A Closer Look”, showcasing his masterful fingerstyle jazz guitar sound and his seven-string Benedetto archtop guitar. In addition to this solo recording Eschete has recorded three CDs with his trio: “Softwinds”, “Rain or Shine”, and “Mo’ Strings Attached”.

While Ron Eschete’s career has been primarily focused on performance, this master jazz guitarist and musician has dedicated nearly twenty five years of his life to teaching music at many colleges and universities including North Texas State University, Utah State University, Loyola University, Louisiana State University at New Orleans, California State Universities at Long Beach and Fullerton, and Musician’s Institute in Hollywood. Ron has been described as a masterful musical chameleon. Switching melodic lines and ideas with cool efficiency and beauty, he transforms from accompanist to soloist and from musical master to musical mentor. Fortunately for aspiring guitarists, Ron has released several instructional jazz guitar tab books which teach his harmonic concepts and chord melody soloing ideas.

Peabody Conservatory trained guitarist Steven Herron helps people succeed at becoming better guitar players. His company ChordMelody.com features an enormous, unique selection of jazz guitar tab as well as guitar books and instructional DVDs by Ron Eschete himself.

Somebody shows up and pays to be there. Somebody with a job. So there’s for and against the jack nicholson to elvis presley effects on people. It’s nice to be nicer, but under it all, its brutal raquet. Eclecticism is more superior, but has rarely been performed. As for the music you have pre-big band and “Idlewild”, both turned out to not help alot in the entire populace, but some may have appriciated it anyway.
