JAZZ GUITAR LEGEND JIM MULLEN TAKES TO THE ZIGGY'S STAGE
Friday 15th March, 7:45pm
Dugdale Centre, 39 London Road, Enfield, EN2 6DS
One of the great jazz guitarists of all time
A five times winner of Best Guitarist in the British Jazz Awards and recipient of a lifetime achievement award in 2015, Jim has performed with US jazz stars including Mose Allison, Jimmy Smith, Jimmy Witherspoon, Percy Sledge and Teddy Edwards. During the 70's and 80's he co-led the legendary jazz fusion band Morrissey Mullen and was guitarist with funk and R&B group The Average White Band, famous for their million-selling instrumental track 'Pick Up the Pieces'. Today Jim collaborates with Jazz Funk stars INCOGNITO plus household names Hamish Stuart, Georgia Fame, Claire Martin obe.
Jims highly original guitar style incorporates blues and soul as well as jazz.
A self-styled ghetto kid from Glasgow, Jim Mullen says his family had no money for music education, so he taught himself. There was nobody to fix my mistakes, he recalls, so basically Im left-handed playing right-handed. Also [like his hero Wes Montgomery] I play with my thumb.
To make up for this he uses an abundance of guitar techniques like hammers-on, pull-offs, sliding and bending which result in Jim's trademark legendary sound & phrasing.
He will be joined tonight by Ziggy's irrepressible All-star house band.
