We at the Hargrave House B & B are really excited about the upcoming Bucks County Jazz Festival! We thought it would be nice to highlight some of the performers coming to town for this awesome event! All information is taken from the Jazz Fest home page. Check it out here!
The first performer we are profiling in Jack Wilkins. Here is his partial bio:
Guitarist Jack Wilkins has been a part of the International jazz scene for more than four decades. His flawless technique and imaginative chordal approach have inspired collaborations with Chet Baker, Sarah Vaughan, Bob Brookmeyer, and Buddy Rich among many others. A native of Brooklyn, Jack began playing guitar at age thirteen. His mentors included Johnny Smith, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Bill Evans, Clifford Brown and Freddie Hubbard.
