At ArtistWorks, there is one goal at the center of everything we do: to help students improve their playing. That's why we're always researching and implementing new features that connect students with their instructor, community, and instrument. 

We're excited to announce that a new feature has been added! ArtistWorks now offers students the ability to slow down lessons and soak in information like never before.

Hey all,

I've had a great time as "Artist-at-Large" here at Strings and Sol. An actual music festival on an actual beach in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. I highly recommend the event.

Anyway, I've been trying to upload some VEs down here and the internet service in my room hasn't allowed for that. I'll be getting home tomorrow and put up what I have, then be back filming more in the studio this week.

Sad to hear my good friend Mundell Lowe passed a couple of days ago in San Diego.

Mudell and I worked together many times since the 1980's both in Europe and the US.

He was a wonderful jazz guitarist, a highly talented composer for TV and film, and was also a real gentleman.

Here's the tribute from the Jazz Times on Mundell... a true jazz guitar great....

 

The guitarist Mundell Lowe, whose credits included work with Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker, died on Saturday at his home in San Diego, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He was 95. Tribune reporter and JT contributor George Varga crafted this profile of the elegant guitarist in 2008. 

“It was a great life,” says Mundell Lowe. “It still is.”

It certainly is for this esteemed guitarist, composer and arranger, whose résumé includes stellar collaborations with enough legends to fill at least one jazz museum.
