Jazz guitarist and songwriter Todd Mosby premieres his new new contemporary jazz composition “Georgia’s World”

Instrumental composer, songwriter, and IMRA guitar innovator Todd Mosby is a storyteller and a landscape artist. He uses the guitar to whisk listeners away to a borderless realm where jazz, jazz fusion, North Indian classical, classical, bluegrass, bossa-nova, and folk-rock create transporting and transformative experiences. He is an acclaimed Indian and jazz guitarist influenced by St. Louis’s vibrantly varied cultural blend of Indian, African-American, and Americana traditions. He is one of the few musicians in America who has mastered western composition, jazz improvisation, and Indian raga music forms and incorporates them freely as a part of his musical language. Todd’s compositions feature strong melodies, sometimes sung by female vocalists recalling the aesthetic of Brazilian musician Sérgio Mendes; virtuosic but lyrical instrumental prowess; deep-pocket grooves informed by a variety of jazz, world, and rock-based traditions; and a deep sense of spiritual intent. To date, Todd has released 6 albums and one single. Along the way, he has earned raves from Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman; ZZAJ’s Dick Metcalf; India’s Music Ambassador Ustadt Imrat Khan; 17-time Grammy Nominee and jazz guitar legend Mike Stern; and Berklee College of Music President, 7-time Grammy Award Winner, and jazz legend, Gary Burton.

Dick Metcalf, aka Rotcod Zzaj, of Improvijazznation has hailed contemporary Jazz guitarist Todd Mosby and his compositions as “Unbounded creative guitar led wonderment… I will tell you right now, Todd is among the most unique creators & performers you will ever hear…”




He just released his new instrumental piece called “Georgia’s World.” The track boasts satiny Wes Montgomery octave licks, a slinky bossa-nova groove, and sultry female melody vocals. It has a magical bossa-nova essence with a hint of jazz rock with the upbeat nature of the drums. The guitar, percussion, and keyboard interact with each other as if in an interpretive dance. The song is a tribute to Georgia O’ Keefe’s life and times in New Mexico. Ethereal female vocals underneath reference her home in Abiqui. Many of Georgia’s landmark paintings were created within her immediate surroundings, serving as a constant source of inspiration. “Upon entering its vicinity, the light appears to shift and take on a special beauty unique to this region,” says Todd. “It is easy to understand why much of O’Keefe’s huge catalogue of works are centered around Abiqui and New Mexico in general.”  You can connect with Todd Mosby via the following links.
