This week young Guitarist Artie Zaitz has been invited lead a trio session for Monday Night Jazz at The Bedford Arms. At 23, he’s nothing less than a master of the electric guitar. You can expect a soul-jazz inspired sound that ranges from Grant Green to Buddy Guy.
Artie Zaitz is a scholarship recipient at Trinity College of Music. Coming from a family of musicians he was exposed to the sounds of jazz from an early age. Artie developed a particular interest in 50's/60's recordings from the Blue Note label, which has had an influence on the material performed with his groups.
Artie Zaitz is a regular feature at many of the top Jazz venues across London, regularly featured at Ronnie Scott's Late, Late Show, The Kansas Smitty's Club on Broadway Market leading his own groups. As well as leading his own groups where he pays tribute to the masters in Jazz, he is the choice Guitarist for many musicians and keeps up a busy schedule as a sideman across London.
Artie cites Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, Kenny Burrell, Jim Hall, John Scofield and Charlie Christian as his main Guitar influences however he is also inspired by the great composers Thelonius Monk, Grachun Moncur III, Paul Motion & Wayne Shorter.
