It’s not every day that you get guitarists of this level together. Both Howard Alden and Sid Jacobs have had a well-deserved level of success in their lives, performing in front of packed audiences across the globe.
Surprisingly, even though Howard and Sid have know each other for years and both had studied with Jimmy Wyble, they never had the opportunity to perform together. Until now! Mike was able to get Sid and Howard together for an intimate house concert in Tucson and give the attendees an opportunity to witness the first time these two jazz legends played their guitars in the same room together.
This unique experience is now available to you as well in form of a video recording.
What happens when two jazz legends play together for the first time? You might expect loads of practice and preparation. As Howard states, “We didn’t have a rehearsal, you get to just hear our ‘hearsal”.
What resulted was a wonderful musical exploration where two master guitarists feel the moment. They explore jazz standards and a rare Jimmy Wyble etude in a masterful duo while incorporating their own unique styles. You can see the joy in each of their faces as they connect musically.
Mike’s Master Classes is bringing this recorded version of this house concert completely free to members.
