Pete McCann is undoubtedly one of the most respected and industrious electric guitarists on the New York and international scene – a popular sideman in innumerable jazz and jazz/rock line-ups over the past 25 years, as well as a recording artist in his own right with five solo albums released to date.
McCann’s prowess has led him to perform with many of the jazz greats, including Kenny Wheeler, Dave Liebman, Lee Konitz, and Brian Blade, and the breadth of his experience – incorporating jazz, rock, Latin, fusion and contemporary classical – has prompted his appearance on over 80 album recordings. Working with the likes of Patti Austin, Grace Kelly and Curtis Stigers, as well as the Mahavishnu Project, he has progressively forged an enviable reputation for both exactitude and exhilarating musicality, influenced by seminal guitarists including Wes Montgomery, John Scofield, Allan Holdsworth and Mike Stern.
