Alex Candelaria

San Francisco based guitarist/composer
Alex Candelaria is a guitar voice in jazz worth investigating. His playing is marked by a fluidity which is both driving and melodic. On "Yeahway" he displays the influence of modern guitar playing while staying in touch with essential aspects of the jazz tradition.

Alex lives in San Francisco and has recently played with Graham Connah's Jettison Slinky, the acapella singing group the Florid Ians, saxophonist Hal Stein, and his own trio.
