“In an era where so little is genuine and real, Stylles has succeeded in capturing honesty and integrity, while swinging you to death. He shares his heart and soul and just plain makes you feel good. You can feel him in the notes and after all, that is what has always made the best jazz.” — Rodney Jones
Jazz guitarist JC Stylles is one of the hottest and in-demand musicians in New York City right now. His exceptionally unique guitar work is beautiful and strong, yet versatile. His mastery of improvisation is evident while emphasizing the melody above all else. This is the essence of jazz guitarist JC Stylles’s style. He brings his trio to Zinc on Monday, January 20 for an evening of standards and original music. He’s supported by pianist organist Paul Odeh and drummer Gerry Gibbs.
Guitarist JC Stylles is that rare artist who knows how to fire up a crowd with some relentless swing, cool them out with a relaxed groove or a beautiful ballad, and then reignite the blaze with a burning tempo that only a full-fledged master instrumentalist could conjure.
JC Stylles, whilst originally from Australia, first appeared in New York City from 1992 to 1995, before making it his permanent home in 2005, whereupon he released the recordings “Chillin’ at Home” and “Live & Unveiled” of which both are in the guitar/organ trio format, where he has staked his claim. He also concentrated on performing with the best Jazz Organists in the business including, Jimmy McGriff, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Tony Monaco, Pat Bianchi, Kyle Koehler, Seleno Clarke, Jimmy “Preacher” Robbins, Mel Davis, Nathan Lucas, Akiko Tsuruga and others.
