Guitar Player, in conjunction with Yamaha, proudly presents legend Mike Stern in Oakland at Yoshi’s, widely regarded as one of the world’s premier jazz venues. Stern’s command of jazz, funk, blues, and rock, instantly made him one of the planet’s most sought-guitar players when he burst on the scene in the late ’70s. His astonishing resume includes stints with Blood, Sweat & Tears, Miles Davis, and Jaco Pastorius, as well as a string of Grammy-nominated solo albums, and a win for Best Jazz Guitarist by Guitar Player readers. Stern’s inspiring bebop facility is matched by his rock intensity, use of non-traditional tones and effects, lyrical phrasing, and oceanic compositional depth. An all-universe rhythm section consisting of bass guru Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck) and groove merchant Dennis Chambers (Parliament/Funkadelic), plus sax man Bob Franceschini (George Benson) will join Stern for this sure-to-sell-out series of dates. No musician worth his or her weight in eggnog should miss this fabulous pre-Christmas package, or the generous gifts given by Yamaha, D’Addario, and Guitar Player.
