Wallpaper Jazz is the blog of Huw Cheston, an Experimental and Jazz guitarist from Bath, UK. His first release, ‘Live; Electric’, incorporates a new composition, ‘Ring’, by composer Luciano Williamson, alongside his own interpretation of Steve Reich’s seminal ‘Electric Counterpoint’. This project is partially funded by the Liz Lawrence award, a £1000 award for a promising young musician about to start studying Music at University, which Huw was awarded in Summer 2016.
Studying Music at Christ Church, Oxford University, Huw has performed with musicians including Dennis Rollins, Jason Rebello and former members of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
Wallpaper Jazz is the home of his transcriptions of Jazz solos and tunes.
