Looking forward to doing some teaching and rehearsing in my music room after lengthy renovations.
I have listening to the great american jazz guitarist billy bean for the past couple of years. Recently a 1961 recording called The Trio has become available on iTunes. The recording is fantastic and the other musicians are Walter Norris on piano and Hal Gaylor on bass. The music s bop influenced and they perform standards and some originals, in terms of articulation and phrasing Billy Bean is ahead of his time.
