Nguyên Lê
"No one plays guitar like he does," wrote the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about Nguyên Lê, the very first exclusive artist signed by ACT. Born in 1959 in Paris to Vietnamese parents, he is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitarists, with influences ranging far beyond jazz, including Asian music, modern jazz, fusion, and classic rock.
