New Release From Guitarist John Basile



Jazz Guitarist John Basile Returns With An Eclectic New Release, Heatin’ Up

NY jazz guitarist John Basile is best known for his warm, dark melodic tone and conversational approach to improvisation. John got his first break touring with Peggy Lee at the behest of legendary jazz drummer Grady Tate (Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith). His thoughtful, less-is-more approach and deep sense of swing quickly made him an in-demand guitarist on the NY scene. During these formative years, John performed and/or recorded in diverse settings with Peggy Lee, Sylvia Sims, Rosemary Clooney, Tony Bennett, George Mraz, Michael Brecker, “Sweets” Edison, John Abercrombie, Tom Harrell, and Red Mitchell, among others. These days whether preparing for the next jazz release or composing cues for his new music/media catalog at Stringtime Productions, John’s musical scope continues to widen and offer new opportunities to remain creatively engaged.
