Scott Henderson plus Sound Check Workshop – International Guitar Festival

Henderson’s lithe guitar style may well be unapologetically loud but the quality of his musicianship has always found him welcomed into the service of Joe Zawinul’s Syndicate and Chick Corea’s earliest incarnation of the Elektric Band – but it’s his co-led band with Gary Willis, Tribal Tech, that he is best loved for, the fact this band have never played in the UK remains one of life’s great mysteries (well for fusion heads like me it does). Tonight he leads a trio featuring bassist John Humphrey and Tech drummer Kirk Covington (who does a mean blues vocal too) for a night of burning blues and jazz – with a unique “soundcheck workshop” for anyone who wants to see this guitar guru warm up for the evening show.
