“Happy Birthday Esmond. You are one of the greatest guitarists on the planet.”
Esmond, you are such a superlative musician who has an organic musical style with effortless abilities.
A great player. Hope to work with you again soon".
Welcome to the home of world renowned jazz guitarist and jazz guitar instructor, Esmond Selwyn.
Esmond Selwyn has been acknowledged as one of the world's great jazz guitarists and jazz guitar instructors ever since his entry in 1995 into the highly prestigious and much coveted work by Ivor Mairants, 'The Great Jazz Guitarists'. Ivor wrote "...Esmond has, in my opinion, a fingerboard technique second to none…”
See a review of Esmond's new album on the review page HERE
"...Esmond Selwyn sprinkling magic over a gossamer reading of Stardust".
"I concur. I saw Esmond Selwyn perform here in Perth, Western
Australia to an audience of primarily young guitarists who were
considerably younger than himself and you could tell just by the look
on their faces that they were absolutely mesmerized by his swift and
creative style of playing."
......I'll also recommend a guitarist from England, who is still playing.
If you have never listened to Esmond Selwyn I would suggest you
give him a listen. - beautiful single lines and his chord playing is
stunning. If you have an interest in contemporary jazz guitar check
out Esmond, sadly he's often overlooked. Your ears will thank you....
“It’s time we wakened up to his genius...”
"I played Esmond Selwyn's Over The Rainbow at a family occasion last month. It was the most popular piece, more than Debussy, Chopin and Bechet. Lovely.
