Dave Stryker: Strykin’ Ahead

Read "Strykin’ Ahead" reviewed by John Kelman

Having just turned sixty this year, it's still quite remarkable that Dave Stryker--a musician who, unfortunately and unfairly, fits into the category of “one of the best guitarists most have never heard"--has released well over thirty albums as a leader/co-leader (including his Stryker/Slagle Band, with saxophonist Steve Slagle, and Latin-informed Trio Mundo) in a little more ...

Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist

Read "Ralph Towner: The Accidental Guitarist" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Ralph Towner is a rather atypical figure in the vast world of jazz guitar. His instruments of choice are the classical guitar, which when he started, in the '60s, was played almost exclusively by guitarists related to Brazilian music like Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeida and Bola Sete, and the 12-string guitar, very common in the folk ...

They're presented in more or less chronological order, and the guiding principle was whether I had a clear memory of the recording ...
