Tom Guarna

Grammy-nominated guitarist, composer and arranger Tom Guarna began his musical career at age 15, when his father introduced him to the guitar. His natural ability to play and compose with phrasing reminiscent of his idols, combined with a relentless drive to refine and invent a unique guitar style has made him a desired commodity in the music industry. He is currently performing and recording with jazz groups internationally, and is first-call on a wide range of projects, from session work, jazz venues, tours, and large arenas.

"Name any guitarist – Metheny, Frisell, Scofield – and the comparison falls short or fails entirely, because Tom Guarna is his own man " - JazzTimes 

"This guitarist’s guitarist deserves wider recognition beyond his considerable rep with his peers. It’s about time that the secret already known among musicians finally becomes public knowledge " -  All About Jazz

"Though this is the New York guitarists seventh album, he's not yet a household name, but all that could change in the very near future after folks hear this one. Highly recommended!" -Sea Of Tranquility
