Event Details

Oxley-Meier Guitar Project

“…the array of changing sounds, moods and textures they create is gorgeous, fascinating and apparently endless. Don’t fall into the trap of assuming that this is something exclusively for guitar buffs, or even jazz buffs. If you love music of any kind you’ll probably fall for this.” Observer

An extra special Chandos Arms Jazz tonight as we welcome back two virtuoso guitarists to Colindale. Pete and Nick have been recording and touring together for a few years now, with a set of their own compositions which cover a vast range.

When playing live they aim to recreate their broad palette of sounds, bringing at least ten differing guitars with them (nylon 7-string, steel string, fretless, 11-string fretless, sitar-guitar, 12 string, etc.). Having clocked up hundreds of concerts together throughout the UK and Europe over the last five years, they perform with an almost uncanny empathy in their interplay. Expect the unexpected: lush and scintillating soundscapes ranging from Turkey to Brazil.

Pete Oxley: Pete began his musical career in Paris in the mid ‘80s before relocating to the UK in 1997. Shortly afterwards he opened The Spin jazz club in Oxford which in 2012 won the Parliamentary jazz award as ‘The Best Jazz Venue In The UK’. He regularly performs with some of the world’s leading jazz artists including Chris Garrick, Gilad Atzmon, Tim Whitehead, Dave O’Higgins, Bobby Wellins, John Etheridge and his own band Curious Paradise. He has now released 14 critically acclaimed CDs featuring his original compositions.

Nicolas Meier: With his unique style that is a blend of Metheny-esque jazz and Turkish inspired world music, Nick has toured extensively around the world with his band the Meier Group, sharing the bill with some of the biggest names in jazz including Bill Evans and Brad Mehldau, Jimmy Haslip and Vinnie Coliauta. This wonderful group won the overall prize for ‘best band’ at the Juan-les-Pins jazz festival! Nick has also toured extensively with guitar supremo Jeff Beck.

“**** A fascinating fusion opulent with evocative splendour” MOJO

“These are two masterly guitarists…If you love music of any kind you’ll probably fall for this.” Observer

“Exemplary” John Etheridge

“[The Colours of Time] is a wonderful example of the high level of music that can be made by combining two great guitarists/composers/improvisers such as Pete and Nicolas. They have put together a feast of virtuosity, delivered with depth, wit and joy.” Ralph Towner

with Yaron Stavi: bass • Rick Finlay: drums/percussion

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is on-street parking in the roads round the pub.
Colindale underground station (Northern Line) is a short walk away. 

Can I pay on the night?
Yes, for those who haven't pre-booked there is a collection at the interval (although you won't be entitled to the discount on meals). We do expect you to contribute the normal admission fee unless you qualify for a concessionary rate…

Are there any concessions?
There is a lower ticket price for students in full-time education. Students and unwaged can also turn up on the night and pay whatever you like (or even nothing). We want you to be able to enjoy the music, and maybe you'll come back and pay the full admission in better times…

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Don't hesitate to call Rick at Just East of Jazz on 020 8361 0265 for questions about the gig.
For queries about the pub — food, drink, access and so on, call the pub on 020 8200 0032.
