This is NOT a normal Jazz CD. It is listed under Progressive Rock because it is NOT the traditional Jazz blowing session. NO long, one chord jams here. You just gotta hear it. LOTS OF GUITAR on here, for u guitar fans, but the focus is on the music, NOT the guitar playing.
I am a great fan of CHARLIE PARKER but grew up in the rock era. This has created a strange output.
Listen to the sound clips of Night in Tunisia for a hint of what its about.
Included in this CD are classical pieces as well as pop/rock tunes. It is GUITAR oriented, since that is my main instrument. My favorite musicians are
Johnny Smith, Barney Kessel, Parker, Coltrane, Joe Pass...the usual list.
I was not trying to focus on a consistent or cohesive program...im just letting it all
Please also take a look at the website CHARLIEX.ORG for much more info.
