“Sherlock is a wonderful guitarist, and a craftsman of songs possessing beauty and depth… Definitely a name to watch out for.” Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
In February 2016, Melbourne guitarists James Sherlock and Stephen Magnusson unite to reprise their acclaimed 2013 solo concert collaboration. Both artists have produced solo guitar albums, and will each present solo works, interspersed with duo performances, featuring their intimate musical dialogue on both originals and standards.
Co-winner of the 2000 National Jazz Guitar Award, Magnusson’s solo album was 14 Creatures, released on ABC Jazz in 2008 to critical acclaim. In 2013 he was the recipient of the Outstanding Musician Award in the Melbourne Prize, as well as the Australian Jazz Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. Sherlock, winner of the 1997 Ike Isaacs International Jazz Guitar Award and nominated for the Freedman Jazz Fellowship in 2005, released his first solo guitar album, Solo, on the Pinnacles label in 2009. He has toured internationally in his duo with vocalist Kristin Berardi over several years (with a past European tour culminating at the Montreux Jazz Festival as opening act for George Benson and Al Jarreau).
