“If John Etheridge weren’t so brilliant he might be more famous.” – The Observer.

“. . . a man with staggering technical prowess but who understands that prowess is nothing without the heart and soul which turns the notes into music.” – Birmingham Post.

“. . . he made the guitar talk and the audience listened with rapt attention.” – The Guardian.

A prodigiously gifted and creative player whose approach to music can only be described as ‘eclectic’, John Etheridge rightly enjoys a glowing reputation throughout the jazz world and beyond.

A guitarist who refuses to accommodate or even acknowledge artificial musical boundaries, his range is well illustrated by his years of touring and recording with jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli while simultaneously doing likewise with the legendary Prog Jazz group, Soft Machine.

Blue Spirits connects with the bluesier, intense side of John’s playing, so expect a heady mix of World, Prog, Jazz, Blues and Fusion.

John Etheridge (Guitar), Pete Whittaker (Organ), George Double (Drums).
