Based in Columbia, SC, The Jazz Guitar Summit is
a group devoted to jazz guitar and jazz guitar ensemble
arrangements. What was initially created as a showcase group for
a concert at a jazz guitar weekend series in Camden, SC, has blossomed into an
occasional working group of highly repected musicians from South Carolina. The band
has performed under various names through the years such as the Comins Guitar Orchestra and String Theory.
The JGS has performed in shows in SC as well as at the
Jazz Bar at the Classic American Guitar Show in NY.
In 2006 The Jazz Guitar Summit emerged with its current lineup and a
consistent vision for its future. The JGS performs 3-4 times a year as schedules permit and often
plays host to visiting friends of the band. Our charts are from well respected arrangers
such as William Leavitt, Rick Stone and Jack Wilkins as well as members of the band. What
started as a concert gig has turned into a regular gathering of five guys who love jazz guitar. We are lucky that
Scott and Kevin are willing to put up with us.
