Lou Volpe’s show is full of good rhythm feel with guitar virtuosity and a unique sound is the backdrop for spirited and soulful versions of songs from the Sinatra era to Clapton & Santana, to Sting & Michael Jackson, with a salute to jazz greats and pop stars (many of whom Lou has played with) along the way.
Some exciting originals are also part of Lou’s personable & inspiring show, including a sampling of his new music from his soon to be released CD, BEFORE AND AFTER (Jazz Guitar Records), BEFORE AND AFTER will release October/November 2019.
“Lou Volpe is a guitarist who has the groove down pat, with the harmonic and melodic sensibilities to put a personal stamp on all his flights.” — Nick Jones, All About Jazz
