Al Shikaly is considered one of the finest woodwind players on the contemporary music scene. After a storied career including performances with musical legends Tito Puente, Lou Rawls, Burt Bacharach and Henry Mancini, Al is now stepping into his full mature creativity.
As a solo artist, Al’s music is ideal for smaller venues as well as corporate events that require a touch of elegance and sophistication. Using his woodwind as well as keyboard skills, he creates an ambiance that is relaxing and is a perfect background for quiet conversation.
He is the leader of his own smooth jazz group called S.E.A.Wind. With the re-release of the critically acclaimed CD entitled “Out of the Blue,” Al Shikaly and the S.E.A.Wind band will take you on a musical journey you will long remember.
Al is also the author of his own teaching methodology titled Improvisation 101: How Music Works.
