As a guitarist myself, these two bands gave me a lot to ponder. From Kevin Eubanks fluid finger-picked solo’s to John’s masterful virtuosity in all things jazz-guitar, I was inspired to go home, lock the door and not come out until I had practiced my guitar for two months straight! And that wouldn’t be enough.
