Jazz guitarist May Inoue has planned a couple of shows in the United Kingdom and Italy, later this month. Most shows will take place in London, but the show in Rome will be a solo live show by the musician.
May Inoue started playing the guitar when he was 15 years old and taught himself by copying his favourite guitar players. In 2011, the musician released a major debut album with the title First Train and received for this album the Nissan Presents Jazz Award in that same year in the category Most Talented Newcomer to Jazz. Currently, he has five albums on his name and recorded alongside big names as guitarist Kazumi Watanabe and performed with American jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. In Japan, he is active solo, in several groups and a band project with Stereo Champ, making instrumental progressive Jazz. In November 2018, he played his first concerts in the United Kingdom. With Stereo Champ, May Inoue released a couple of singles in August this year.
