Mike Walker | Back
Guitar

Born in Salford in 1962, and still based in the Manchester area, Mike Walker comes from a musical family. Largely self-taught, he began to gig around the Manchester area in the 1980s, gradually coming to the attention of such eminent leaders as Mike Gibbs and Kenny Wheeler: it was through his work in their big bands that he graduated to becoming guitarist with the great George Russell, with whom he toured extensively throughout Europe and the US. As well as his big band work, Mike has been a member of innumerable smaller units, including those led by Julian Arguëlles, Tommy Smith and Phil Bancroft, with all of whom his combination of sensitive Tal Farlow-style melodicism and full-on fireworks has made a major contribution.
