AUGUST 2022 NEWSLETTER

MEET ALBAN CLARET We are pleased to let you know that Alban Claret has recently taken ownership of a lovely carved top Fibonacci Californian, finished in sienna red nitro and fitted with a floating Jon Dickinson P90. Our introduction to Alban was through the great Nigel Price, who had been testing some humbuckers for Jon Dickinson on one of our guitars. Alban needed a P90, so never the one to disappoint, Jon built one for him. And what a terrific pickup it has turned out to be. The rest is history, so to speak! Alban Claret was born in Perpignan, in the south of France in 1987. Alban took his first guitar lessons at eight years old but fully discovered his passion and dedication for music making as a teenager at the age of 14, which led him to study the instrument more intensively. In 2004, he studied at the Jazz department of the Conservatoire of Perpignan with the highly respected French Jazz Guitarist, Serge Lazarevitch. During this period Alban composed his first music, led several bands, and played his first concerts. Upon his arrival in the Netherlands in 2008, Alban studied with Martijn van Iterson, one of the best jazz guitarist of his generation. Over the last 10 years or so, Alban has maintained a busy touring schedule across Europe, working with Artists such as Gregory Hutchinson, David Liebman, and Peter Bernstein, which gave him the direction and focus he needed. In 2017, he decided to move to London and settle as a full time musician here. Since then he has maintained a busy schedule performing at various jazz clubs across the UK.
