JD's Jazz Guitar

Jazz bands can be anything from me on solo guitar, to a duo, trio, quartet, quintet etc. The most regular line-up I play with is as a trio or quartet with double bass, drums and piano. Playing a mix of standards, chilled out bossas, Latin beats and funky grooves from the jazz standards and original compositions.
