One of the most esteemed electric guitarists of his generation, Mike Stern has distinguished himself over a four-decade career that has encompassed musical partnerships with Blood Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, the Brecker Brothers, and Joe Henderson, as well as sixteen recordings as a leader (six of which were nominated for Grammy Awards). An electrifying soloist whose blistering chops combine rock-fusion firepower with sophisticated jazz harmonies and his inherently bluesy string-bending prowess. Stern has the ability to instantly elevate the proceedings on any gig or session he plays by channeling the spirits of his own personal guitar heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, and Albert King.
