Bob Shimizu

Introducing "Lets Get Together" the latest release from jazz-guitarist Bob Shimizu. "Let's Get Together", Shimizu's second solo release, is a celebration of the song-book of a life-time and a musical journey that pays homage to jazz standards and selections from the great American pop and rock song-books. Produced by veteran Clarke Rigsby (Joey DeFrancesco, Jimmy Smith, Tower Of Power) the album features Shimizu's Arizona-based quartet including Mario Mendivil (elec. bass), Lamar Gaines (piano, Wurlitzer, Clavinet), Mike Florio (drums) and Todd Chuba (percussion) as well as a vocal cameo by singer-songwriter Obadiah Parker (Grandma's Hands), who lends grit and soul to the session. Shimizu's trek into the non-traditional also includes a foray into the traditional organ-trio setting featuring New Yorkers Pat Bianchi on Hammond B3, and Carmen Intorre on drums (both on-loan from the Pat Martino Trio). "Let's Get Together" presents Shimizu's unusual take on "standards"
