Yep, I love that stuff. I'm loving all jazz at this point in life. Gettin into M. Davis' later stuff......very dark.....wow. Check out Oscar Aleman. He was a contemporary of Djangos. Played a Selmer d hole with finger picks! Not exactly the same style as Django but talented indeed. He would occasionally sit in for Django.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_Alem%C3%A1nhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_1-rp-F-UEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByQaj1V27Qk Miles Davis' "Star People"......check out Mike sterns guitar solos.....wow.....love this stuff......dark and brooding. Marcus Miller on bass.....he da man!
Thanks for that. Had not heard Oscar Aleman. (IMHO he is no Django.) Love those gypsy jazz guitars. Want one! Do you play?I am partial to Miles in his classic, be-bop period. The Birth of the Cool! Miles and Trane!Is Star People before or after Bjs Brew? Sounds related in time.Bon Soir!
