for me, is the musician par excellence. I cannot explain why, the words
would not be sufficient... from the moment I discovered Wes, he influenced
me, deeply; I also love Burrell, for his phrasing, his sonority...
I respect Joe Pass, he´s a mountain of technique and ideas.
All guitarists have their personality and are interesting. Tal Farlow
infatuated me to the point that I experienced all his solos by heart...
And Barney Kessel? That´s the first Jazz guitarist I heard in the
Antilles... I forgot a “monster”: George Benson !”
