Los Angeles resident Brian Hughes has carved out an impressive career in the contemporary jazz arena. His first two albums, Between Dusk and Dreaming and Under One Sky, firmly established him as one of the foremost guitarists and composers in the genre, perfectly blending his fluid and emotive guitar style into an exciting, melodic mix of Latin, Jazz and World Music compositions.
After being picked as a winner in JAZZIZ Magazine’s “Guitars On Fire” competition his subsequent recordings Straight To You, One 2 One, Shakin’ Not Stirred, Along the Way and Live have received critical acclaim and major radio air play from coast to coast. With his sizzling fret work and infectious compositions the media are accurate in saying: “Both a great artist and an accessible one. His passion is so obvious, intense and contagious, that his audience shares it.”
Brian has received the SOCAN/BMI “Jazz & Instrumental Composer of the Year” award seven times from 1997 to 2009 and the title track from “Shakin’ Not Stirred” was featured on an episode of HBO’s “Sex and the City”.
All these albums are now available at CDBaby.
