Say “jazz” and you think “red hot cool.”
Say “jazz guitar” and Lou Volpe is the ultimate living synonym.
For more than two decades, the guitar of this Bronx, New York, native has been a standard on the New York music scene. His resume of album guitar performance, touring stints, and music production, composition and arranging reads like a “who’s who” of masters in the music entertainment industry. Volpe has toured with Bette Midler and Judy Collins, and has co-produced, composed, arranged and toured extensively with the legendary Herbie Mann.
Other performance and recording credits include work with Peggy Lee, Chaka Khan, Bo Diddley, David “Fathead” Newman, Chet Baker, Liza Minnelli, Lionel Hampton, Roberta Flack, Phoebe Snow, The Manhattan Transfer and Herbie Hancock.
