PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jimmy’s Jazz and Blues Club Features 4x-GRAMMY® Award-Winner & 20x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Bassist & Composer JOHN PATITUCCI’s “Electric Guitar Quartet” on Thursday October 13 at 7:30 P.M. Legendary Bassist John Patitucci has been at the forefront of the jazz world for the last 30+ years and active in all styles of music.

Patitucci’s many recordings with Chick Corea’s Elektric Band and Akoustic Band brought him a GRAMMY® Award for “Best Jazz Instrumental Performance” as well as numerous GRAMMY® Award Nominations.
In 2000, John began touring again with the legendary Wayne Shorter, and the Wayne Shorter Quartet. They received worldwide acclaim for their performances and recordings. Their live recording ‘Footprints Live’ was Nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in 2001 and a studio recording, ‘Alegria’, won a GRAMMY® Award in 2003.
When John was not touring with his own band or the Wayne Shorter Quartet, he found time to perform in other ensembles, such as the all-star quintet Directions In Music, in 2001, which was led by Herbie Hancock and featured the late Michael Brecker on Saxophone with Roy Hargrove on Trumpet and Brian Blade on Drums. They released a subsequent live CD entitled ‘Live at Massey Hall,’ which also won a GRAMMY® Award.
Most recently, John won another GRAMMY® Award in 2019 as part of the Wayne Shorter Quartet for “Best Jazz Instrumental Album” (‘Emanon’).
