“On ‘Sly Guitar’, however he returns to (and lays into) his main instrument with a sharp-clawed and swaggering stylishness. It’s the kind of performance that suggests he’s ripped the tail-fin off a 1950s Cadillac and carved a new guitar from it.” Dann Chin, Misfit City

You hire John to come and play, then you can invite your friends along for an interesting evening of performance, stories from life on the road, Q&A session and some teaching if you’d like to develop your guitar playing skills.
It’s up to you whether or not to charge your friends.
Chanoyu Records is a new label created to release the music of UK guitarist/composer John Ellis. SLY GUITAR is the latest release by John. His work as a guitarist has been compared with artists such as Robert Fripp and Fred Frith. If you are interested in modern guitar music, this is the place for you. Copies of SLY GUITAR are now available from this site.
“The moody soloing on “Infanta” could easily have come off one of Andy Summers’ and Robert Fripp’s well-known collaborative albums, Bewitched and I Advance Masked from the early eighties. “Pedalo” would actually fit rather well on a late-period King Crimson album.” From a review by ‘Make your own taste’.
