Stanley Jordan – Master Sessions

Stanley Jordan emerged in the mid-1980’s as one of the most gifted and innovative guitarists in contemporary jazz; Jordan sidestepped conventional picking methods in favor of a two-handed tapping technique on the instrument’s fretboard, allowing for a fluid speed and polytonal effect not easily replicated by most players. Star Licks Master Sessions: Stanley Jordan is an instructional video in which Jordan demonstrates his unusual performance style, as well as offering advice on effective practice methods, how to improve dexterity, melodic improvisation, and more. Language: English Country: USA Running time: 90 min Quality: VHSRip Video: DivX 320×240, 30 fps Audio:...

Buddy Rich – Live in ’78

This concert should definitely prove a winner for listeners who prefer the straight-ahead, swinging, Count Basie-indebted Buddy Rich ensembles of the mid-to-late 1970s to the somewhat rock-heavy sonic barrage of the band assembled by the legendary drummer and bandleader at the close of the 1960s.

The program is a crowd-pleaser, including a...
