The jazz, rock and avant-garde guitar luminary’s solo performances blend standards, originals, free improvisation, and material from across his momentous career.

ABOUT MARC RIBOT
No guitarist has traveled a more circuitous creative path than Marc Ribot, a major force on the New York jazz scene since the mid-1980s. While often associated with the avant-garde, Ribot thrives in any musical context, contributing prominently to the work of Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, The Lounge Lizards, and Diana Krall, as well as Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s five-time GRAMMY Award-winning 2007 album Raising Sand. Applying his unorthodox technique and vast, percussive sonic palette to a mind-boggling array of musical realms, Ribot has delved into the classic compositions of the great Cuban sonero Arsenio Rodríguez with his Los Cubanos Postizos band, explored Albert Ayler’s ecstatic free jazz forays with his power-packed trio, investigated country music in Nashville with Bill Frisell and Buddy Miller, unleashed scorching avant-rock with his trio Ceramic Dog, dug into bone-deep roots rock with Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo, and conjured the spirits in duo with jazz piano giant McCoy Tyner.

ABOUT MARC RIBOT

Emotive, graceful, but with a glint of mischief in his method.

Rolling Stone

He can sit down with just his guitar and simultaneously confound you with technique, beauty, and surprise. The result is solo guitar at its finest.
