Live At Nectar's 19/4/17


The legacy of legendary Soul Jazz guitarist Melvin Sparks will be celebrated on Friday 28th April with the release of 'Live At Nectar's (Track Of The Day) on One Note Records. Texas-born Melvin Sparks was a Rhythm & Blues guitarist at the outset of his career, backing Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye as a member of The Upsetters. He gave up his seat on The Upsetters' bus when a chance introduction to George Benson inspired him to relocate to New York City; a decision that would ultimately pave the way for his ascension into the Soul Jazz pantheon.
