Guitarist Sheryl Bailey is an in-demand leader, side-person, and educator. She currently has six releases as a leader, including a recent DVD/CD from Mel Bay Records: “The Sheryl Bailey 3: Live in NYC.” All of her releases feature her work not only as a guitarist, but also as composer. She also leads Jazz Guitars Meet Hendrix, with jazz guitar virtuoso Vic Juris, which explores the music of Jimi Hendrix from a jazz guitar perspective. She has published educational books for Mel Bay: “Moveable Shapes: Concepts for Re-Harmonizing II-V-I’s” and her solo from her composition “Old and Young Blues” is included in the compilation “Jazz Masters Anthology Vol. VI.” She also has been a regular columnist for their “NY Scene” column for the Mel Bay website. She is currently an Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and is on the faculty of The Collective in New York City. In addition to her solo outings, Sheryl has toured and recorded with David Krakauer’s Klezmer Madness, Richard Bona, Shingo Okudaira, George Garzone, Jack Wilkins, Howard Alden and pop diva Irene Cara.
Her upcoming release, “A New Promise” will be available in the Fall of ’09 on the MCG Jazz label. It is a tribute to the late Emily Remler with the 3 Rivers Jazz Orchestra, under the direction and arranging skills of Mike Tomaro and produced by Grammy award winning producer, Marty Ashby.
