A longtime Trumpets favorite, virtuoso guitarist Bob DeVos returns with an exciting quartet that has been wowing NYC audiences the past couple of years. Come hear why when Bob blends his signature guitar sound with featured player and DownBeat Rising Star #1 Vibraphonist Behn Gillece, up and coming organist Chris Simonini, and veteran ace drummer Tim Horner. Bob–who in his long, storied career has played with most all of the classic and modern organ greats–has always loved the sound of guitar, vibraphone, organ and drums. With Behn’s energy, harmonic sense, compositional skills and a great rhythmic feel, Bob has found the vibes player who fully complements the fervor and soul of Bob’s playing.
With long, blues-drenched lines; a warm, fat sound; and a horn-like, melodic approach, Bob DeVos has been proclaimed a living jazz legend. The masterful guitarist has an enthusiastic following for his innovative work, first with a who’s who of jazz greats in and outside of the Hammond B3 organ genre–including Richard “Groove” Holmes/Sonny Stitt, Jimmy McGriff/Hank Crawford, and Charles Earland–and for the past 20 years as a leader. A brilliant improviser, DeVos thrills audiences worldwide with tight-knit performances of jazz standards, Rhythm & Blues, ballads, and his own hip compositions and modern arrangements. With his signature mix of groove and sophistication, Bob’s releases on Savant/HighNote ranked in the Top Five in national airplay and have been included on Top CDs of the Year lists.
