This Sunday Music Muse Day find us having a changeable fall weather day, Sunday, then cloudy, then windy. Just the kind of day to enjoy these young jazz guitarists, who I think of as new guard picking up the torch from my 70's guitar favorites, like John McLaughlin, the late John Abercrombie, and John Scofield. Kurt Rosenwinkel Deep Song is solid outing from musician who has established himself solidly in the New York jazz scene.
My second is Julian Lage Arclight. Another guitarist who has made his mark first as child prodigy, then as band leader, noted sideman with Gary Burton, among others, and educator. I hear strains of John Scofield and Abercrombie in the CD, and a little playfulness of Bill Frisell. Well worth a listen.
But, slipping deeper in the creative Rabbit Hole, I made a music video telling the stories in the songs.
