Take a snapshot of an incredible career: virtuoso John Abercrombie has been playing jazz guitar in all its forms for over 40 years, with his musical signature appearing on some 50 albums—his own, and an impressive gallery of other great musicians, from Gil Evans to Jack DeJohnette... Renowned for his vivid, limpid style, this old friend of the Festival returns after his solid quartet concert last summer. As always, it is a privilege and an honour to welcome him!
