Mundell Lowe


Often referred to as a "musician's musician," jazz guitarist Mundell Lowe is widely admired for his harmonically rich and mellow sound. Early in his career, Lowe worked with jazz titans Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, and Charles Mingus, to name a few. In the Fifties and Sixties, he was the guitar player in NBC's "Today Show" studio band, before moving to the West Coast where he composed for film and television. In the Nineties, Lowe returned to performing and played with André Previn, Tete Montolu, and the Great Guitars, a group that included Herb Ellis and the late greats Tal Farlow and Charlie Byrd.
