In a career that spans three decades and a discography that includes more than a dozen eclectic and innovative recordings, five-time Grammy nominee Mike Stern has established himself as one of the premier jazz and jazz-fusion guitarists and composers of his generation.
Stern's music has always come from a colorful and diverse part of town a place where numerous artistic styles converge to create a fresh sound thats rooted in jazz but refuses to adhere to rigid borders. Since his earliest recordings, this former bandmate of Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, Billy Cobham and other high-profile innovators has grafted elements of rock, blues, soul and more to his solid jazz foundations. On Sterns street, anybody who brings a sense of energy, eclecticism and passion to the craft of music is welcome to play.
