Rick Hannah plays with an Alhambra guitar Crossover CS-3CW model in his duo "Ten String Swing"

Rick Hannah is a musician, composer and arranger born in Philadelphia who started his passion for the guitar when he was 12 years old.

In the decade of the 70s, he worked in Los Angeles where he played different styles such as Blues, Rock, Funk and Fusion.

During this time, he made several tours around Europe with Alphonse Mouzon (drums) and Brian Auger (organ), to later join the band "Billy Mitchell-John Bolivar Group". A formation with which he recorded the album "Passion".

In 1996 he decided to dedicate himself to conventional  jazz. Genres such as swing, bop, and blues, with which he returned to the east coast of the United States where influenced by Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, he developed the art of Jazz Guitar Trio. A combination where the guitar replaces the piano in this traditional format.

Rick Hannah brought the acoustic guitar to the "Jazz Mainstream", a style of jazz that developed from the 1950s and that in the 70's regained popularity in the United States. Today it is a style known throughout the world.

In France, since 2005, he continued to concentrate on his new Trio, while creating and directing the "Guitar Big Band from Strasbourg" and organizing jazz nights at a café in Strasbourg.

Rick is a brilliant guitarist of Solo Jazz Guitar, a musician who prefers intimate environments where an atmosphere with greater interaction with the audience is achieved.
