The holiday hurricane has passed on through and now it’s all about cold. Wow! Getting a taste of what real winters can feel like. And I know they’re chanting “you ain’t seen nothing yet” in Wisconsin…
We don’t have any live gigs this week but I thought I’d get the word out about fusion avatar guitarist Scott Henderson’s concert at Dizzy’s in San Diego on Sunday, January 9th. He’s bringing his own trio and believe me, they rip it up!
His music is fusion, so he’s playing a guitar with distortion and it has some rock feel to it but the harmony and lines are sophistication amped up to ten. Think Weather Report meets Albert King. Good stuff!
I use to teach at the Musician’s Institute in Hollywood and Scott was there at that time too. He joined Chick Corea’s group after the little stint I had playing with Chick. What a great fellow and a gifted muso.
I’m going to the concert and they’re requiring masks and some distancing too. Got to stay safe!
Maybe I’ll see you there and look below for the details:
