Mix George Benson’s guitar playing with Quincy Jones’ arrangements, add Jamiroquai’s grooves and Earth, Wind & Fire’s vocals and, you get Vladimir Četkar. Brimming with style, the multitalented Macedonian guitarist and vocalist also composes, arranges and produces his original music. Described by Time Out New York as “George Michael fronting Steely Dan in a cocktail bar,” Četkar channels the 1970s and ’80s, interweaving pop, soul and disco into jazz. Currently based in New York City, the Berklee College of Music grad heads north to Norwich University, where it’s safe to say he’ll deliver a performance to remember.
