Details

Self-taught and dedicated to the art of making music spontaneously Remi says of himself –
“Guitar has always been about improvising to me, that's what I love about many of the early rock and blues bands that I grew up listening to, they were really jamming and interacting with each other in the moment. Jazz appealed to me because it’s all about improvisation, freedom and experimentation, it was a natural progression for me having just spent my teens playing in rock and blues jam bands. It started with just learning a few licks to put into my blues solos but it wasn't long before I was bitten by the bug.”
If you enjoyed Matt Holborn’s band last year then this is definitely for you.
"Superb, thoughtful lightning speed lines, created with flare and passion... he's a very fine player and his trio has one of the best sounds I've heard in a gypsy jazz idiom - very alive and truly acoustic. He can play flawlessly and with great passion in pretty well any style"
Paul Jeffries ~ Jazz on Tap

Remi Harris - lead guitar
Caley Groves - rhythm guitar
