John Smith

Check out the video for “Winter”, you can not only hear but see his percussive guitar technique – very nice.


What I’m listening to now….

DIG Jazz Herbie Hancock’s ‘Maiden Voyage’ and remembering when I saw him play it live in San Diego in the 70’s…takes you to a different space. 

Before that….Martin Taylor ‘Stella by Starlight’ nice guitar….

Last week saw John Williams and John Etheridge at the Arts Centre from the second row …. like having them in your living room….could see their fingers clearly as they played.  Beautifully complex, yet minimalist at times.  Favourite piece ‘Peace Love and Guitars’.  Some of the African pieces reminded me of Philip Glass and Foday Suso performing ‘The Screens’ as we saw at UC Davis.

Staying in listening to music as today is a grey gloomy day, unlike yesterday.
