Sandie White with the Esmond Selwyn Trio
Esmond Selwyn has long been recognised as one of the UK’s greatest performing jazz guitarists, a view that has been readily seconded by many.
A highly regarded sideman with Don Rendell’s band—one of the UK’s greatest—Esmond is in great demand for jazz festivals in the UK and Europe, as well as studio work and of course is a noted teacher and educator.

Esmond’s style forms a direct link with the great jazz guitarists of the past, many of whom are friends such as Tal Farlow and George Van Epps and has appeared on the same bill as Charlie Byrd, Chick Corea and Elvin Jones, as well as personally accompanying American jazz giants Art Farmer, Al Cohn and Jimmy Witherspoon.
