Mike Stern, six--time Grammy nominee, is considered one of the finest jazz and jazz-fusion guitarists and composers of his generation.

He followed that up with two hits, in 1994 and in 1996 both of which earned Grammy nominations. Stern was also nominated for Grammys in 2001 and 2006. His "Lifecycle" (2008) album was nominated for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. Stern was recently named to the venerable jazz magazine's list of 75 Great Guitarists in February of 2009 and released "Big Neighborhood" in August 2009.
