There are so many great guitarists out there that one might think this was a tough question. Jerry is certainly not the fastest. On the other hand, no one can rip out such melodic sounds that make you smile from ear to ear and say, "I am with you, on that one man!" So Jerry wins it for me, because his music was magical and inspired so much happiness. It's funny how a simple la da deee da can make one smile...make one's day...make one's life! I loe you Jerry, forever!
For you Django lovers you MUST seek out Roy Williams. He's playing with Stephan Wremble tomorrow night in Scranton, PA. With a lineup that truly is a once in a lifetime mind blowing event. A cut right from Django. If you're into that gypsy jazz swing thing this kid is the real deal and someone you should see....
I've been dioggin Adrian since Discipline came out and I caught that show on 10-31-81. Seen the Bears a few times and recently caught Adrian's one man show---really cool---lots of stories about playing with Zappa and answering audience questions---also, brought his own paintings he's been working on and had them on stage.
There's a lot of great guit players out there for sure. not that these are my favs, but no one mentioned Fareed Haque from Garage Majah or Hiram Bullock. Great players who are worth checking out.
are some of my favs to see these days when I can.
"seek out Roy Williams. He's playing with Stephan Wrembel tomorrow night in Scranton, PA"
I'd say the same about Wrembel, blows my mind every time I see him. I'll check Roy out. If you by chance talk with Stephane tomorrow would you please tell him his Green Apple book buddy says to get back out to SF this Summer?
I forgot Bill Frisell
and Mark Ribot
many others, for sure
These guys were pretty good one Friday at the Warfield. This show was a ton of fun, what a treat.
