From the wilds of Manhattan to the shores of Japan and Germany, jazz guitarist Vic Juris has covered an impressive range of territory, musically as well as geographically.  He has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Phil Woods, Jimmy Smith, Sarah Vaughan, Chico Hamilton, Dave Liebman, Richie Cole, Mel Torme, Eddie Jefferson and Nancy Wilson.  In the mid eighties Vic teamed up with the phenomenally talented guitarist Bireli LaGrene and the two began playing together regularly.  Their popular performances were charged with the intensity of two masters challenging each other to new heights.  Vic and Bireli toured Europe together. 

Vic has also been a member of the David Liebman group since 1991.  This band has recorded 10 CDs, traveled throughout Europe, Japan, Israel, and the United States throughout the 1990s and is still going strong till this day.  Vic was also a member of the Gary Peacock Quartet and musical director of the Charles Mingus Guitar Quintet.  He performed at George Wein's J.V.C. Festival, in duets with John Abercrombie and Russell Malone.  As a leader, Vic is performing in the U.S. and in European venues.  His own quartet includes saxophonist Dick Oatts, and has recorded on the Steeple Chase label "Night Tripper", "Pastels", "Moonscape", "Remembering Eric Dolphy" .  His CD "Songbook" hit top 10 pics in 2000.  Vic has also recorded on Double Time Records "Music of Alec Wilder".  Vic's 2004 release of "Blue Horizon" listed him as top pics for that year.  He is currently recording for the Mel Bay label.  Vic  tours as a special guest, with his own band or in duo with vocalist Kate Baker.

 Vic Juris is also one of the leading jazz educators throughout the world.  He has written two books published by Mel Bay, "Vic Juris Inside/Outside: Original Play-Along Modern Jazz Guitar Solos" and "Modern Chords:Advanced Harmony for Guitar".  Both books are highly regarded by up and coming guitarists.  He currently teaches at The New School for Social Research, Rutgers University, and Lehigh University, and conducts clinics throughout the US and Europe.
