Mike Baggetta Quartet

Mike Baggetta : Guitar
Jason Rigby : Saxophone
Eivind Opsvik : Bass
George Schuller : Drums

Performing music from “Small Spaces" (Fresh Sound New Talent) and new works.

Guitarist Mike Baggetta is one of his generations most original jazz improvisors and composers. He has performed and/or recorded with Tom Harrell, Conrad Herwig, Ralph Bowen, Adam Kolker, George Schuller, Jeff Hirshfield, Jamie Baum, Tony Reedus, Steve LaSpina, Bill McHenry, Matt Wilson, Bucky Pizzarelli and Ruth Brown among many others. It has been said that his performances are “totally compelling" (Jazz Journal - UK), “his melodic sense is truly beautiful" (Jazz Review) and that “each piece he performs creates new worlds of possibilities" (The Hartford Courant). Mike Baggetta recently received an ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Award for his compositional talent, and the first album of his works for the Mike Baggetta Quartet - “Small Spaces" - has recently been released on the Fresh Sound New Talent label. His musical studies have been insightfully guided by Ted Dunbar, Vic Juris, Stanley Cowell and Jim Hall and he has had the pleasure of performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, Town Hall and many other leading concert venues worldwide. Mike currently lives in New York City and is an endorsing artist for D'Addario Strings and Evans Custom Amplifiers.
