Jack Wilkins is a New York-based Jazz guitarist & teacher who’s been active in the scene since the 1970s recording & performing with, among many, Mel Torme, Ray Charles, Morgana King, Sarah Vaughan, Sammy Davis Jr, Tony Bennett, Nancy Wilson. Check out samples of his work as leader and sideman.

This session was taped in 2010 at Jack’s New York home. Audio is a bit rough (oh those early days) but Jack’s words and music shine through. Later that evening I filmed him performing at a local performance with none other than Bucky Pizzarelli. Portions of that performance will be in a later video in this series. He performs regularly and you should go see him.
