Can't even begin to say how much I've learned from this brilliant musician and wonderful human being! I came to him a couple years ago as a proficient rock guitarist with the desire of immersing myself in jazz guitar, and the progress I've made thanks to him is just astounding. If you're in New York or he's performing in your town, do yourself a favor and go out and see his group, as he never disappoints. Did I mention great sense of humor too? Highly recommended for anybody!
