Scott Sherwood

Jazz guitarist Scott Sherwood has been praised by critics and peers alike for the effortless fluidity, warmth and expressiveness of his sound. An innately melodic musician, his approach to guitar and composition has a purity and lyricism that is deceptively complex. His playing is rich and subtle, marked by genuine feeling. Sherwood lists responsiveness, empathy and communication as key elements to his musical collaborations as is evident in his new Art of Life Records release with pianist Bob Rodriguez, "Ripples". Sherwood was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin but did not begin to study guitar seriously until his sophomore year of high school

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
