The Oxley/Meier Guitar Project

The Oxley/Meier Guitar Project

3rd December 2017


Guitarists Pete Oxley and Nicolas Meier play music that always communicates with a feeling of spontaneity, passion and enjoyment.

Pete and Nicolas' latest offering, The Colours of Time, is their most ambitious project to date, a double CD that features them in duo and quartet formats, and continues to showcase their favourite sources – Pat Methenyesque tunes, Latin cool, Hot Club swing and Turkish music, with Indian influences also present.

So, expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare from two masters of their craft, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of Latin America to English pastoralism. And hear this played on nylon string, steel string, electric, 12-string, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more!

Completing the line-up are Raph Mizraki (Double Bass) and Paul Cavaciuti (Drums), whose credentials include working with, among others, John Etheridge, Jamie Cullum, Jim Mullen, Tina May, Jacqui Dankworth, Cayenne, Roberto Pla and the Gail Thompson Big Band.

THE MEIER GROUP

“They have put together a feast of virtuosity delivered with depth, wit and joy." - Legendary guitarist Ralph Towner on ‘The Colours Of Time’.

" . . . not just a guitar album to love, a jazz album to savour, but a joyous album of music that reaches toward a goal beyond.” – Jazzwise on ‘The Colours Of Time’.

“Don’t fall into the trap of assuming that this is something exclusively for guitar buffs, or even jazz buffs. If you love music of any kind, you’ll probably fall for this.” - The Observer on ‘Chasing Tales’.
