Nigel Clark’s US debut CD, Grand Hotel Europa (also available as a download), bridges the gap between straight-ahead Jazz and smooth Jazz, pleasing fans of both genres with his dazzling virtuosity, delicate touch, and unique sound.

Europe has been abuzz for the last decade about a stunning guitarist from the misty highlands of Scotland. Delighting audiences around the globe with his smooth, fluid sound, Nigel Clark has emerged as one of Europe's premier guitarists. With the silky sound of the Spanish, nylon-sting guitar, Clark creates a new hybrid in the jazz melting pot. The result is a true contemporary conception, planted deeply in traditional roots.

Clark has performed and toured with highly regarded artists such as Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Jan Akkerman, Spanish guitarist Ximo Tebar, as well as legendary Scottish vocalist Carol Kidd.

Some of the originals on Grand Hotel Europa show the influence of Nigel's ‘complete world’ sensibility. Unlike your typical Jazz recording, the album is a celebration of the different sounds that have informed Nigel Clark's music throughout the years; from the Far East, to the smoky clubs of   New York, and on to the hot summer nights of Brazil.
