Johnny Smith

(2 posts)
  1. Hey Kurt- Love the new album. In lot of your interviews, i see that you were really influenced by George Van Eps- but i was wondering if you checked out Johnny Smith at all. I hear a lot of Johnny in your playing (some of the closed chord voicings, etc.)

  2. obviously I am not kurt, but I'd bet he has spent considerable time with Johnny Smith, and probably every other great guitarist out there. I'd also bet there are very few great jazz musicians out there who don't have serious command of the history of this music and in particular the history of this music on their instruments.
