Among guitarists and critics, Woody Mann is considered a modern master.
Since his early days when Woody took his first musical schooling with Reverend Gary Davis, the legendary blues, gospel and ragtime guitarist and with Chicago-born jazz pianist Lennie Tristano, Mann has pursued a rich and diverse career.
From his first solo recording Stairwell Serenade that Guitar Player Magazine included in their “guitar recordings of destiny” he has performed everywhere from the orchestra pits of Broadway to stages worldwide, accompanied songwriter Dori Previn, given guitar lessons to Paul Simon, was honoured by the C.F. Martin guitar company with the release of “Woody Mann” signature model, is the official USA ambassador to the Great Britain International Guitar Festival, and has schooled countless guitarists through his many books and DVDs. His recordings include over a dozen releases as a soloist and in collaboration with others including music legends Son House, Bukka White, and John Fahey. His latest release “Careless Love” features a collection of original tracks ranging from Italian inspired melodies to Southern blues and jazz rhythms. It is yet another inspired set that shows why Woody continues to be an original voice on the music scene, bringing the past up to the present - with his own contemporary improvisational style.
