Australian guitarist/composer/educator Tim Jago has been residing in the US for the past 8 years. His infectious, groove-based music and blues-driven playing is surely not to be missed.

He was announced as a semi finalist in the inaugural Wes Montgomery International Jazz Guitar Competition (2015). He has performed and recorded with a host of world-class musicians including Patti Austin, Terence Blanchard, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Chick Corea, Dave Douglas, Gloria Estefan, Wycliffe Gordon, Dave Liebman, Bobby McFerrin, Vince Mendoza, Steve Miller, James Morrison, Danillo Perez, Chris Potter, and Arturo Sandoval, to name a few.
Tim has released three albums – ‘The Grid’ (2010), ‘Wear More Headbands’ (2013), and ‘The Grid III (featuring four)’ (2015) with his trio, The Grid. He has recorded in the U.S. as a member of many bands, including Troy Roberts’ Nu-Jive, ‘Nu-Jive 5′ (2013), and ‘Nu-Jive Perspective’ (to be released 2018).
