Perry Hughes – Jazz Guitarist
Perry Hughes ranks among the greatest of Detroit’s jazz guitarists.
He began his performing career in Detroit nightclubs at the tender age of 14, and hasn’t stopped performing in the many decades since then. A self-taught musician, he went on to be an instructor of jazz guitar at Michigan State University.
His approach to the guitar has been described as comparable to such greats as Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Pat Martino and George Benson. His musical resume includes performing and/or recording with a long list of top jazz and pop musicians and leading vocalists, including Aretha Franklin, Bob James, Earl Klugh, Ronnie Laws, Mary Wilson & The Supremes, Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, Bill Heid, Marlena Shaw, Bobby Lyle, Joe Williams, Will Downing, Gene Dunlap and Irene Reid, as well as organ greats, Jimmy Smith, Richard “Groove” Holmes, Charles Earland, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ronnie Foster, Don Patterson, Jack McDuff ― and more recently, Gerard Gibbs.
