    Hello all.

    I had the pleasure of chatting with Jazz Guitarist Bruce Forman a few days ago and we talked about his acquiring Barney Kessel's iconic guitar and what he plans on doing with it. If interested check it out. I think you'll find it highly informative and entertaining ? and may recognise the name of the photographer who took the cool photos of Bruce and Corey

    Barney born in 1940? Wow! He was playing with Artie Shaw and Charlie Barnet in the 40s.

    That’s real talent. Musicians aren’t what they used to be, clearly.

    LOL...wow...thanks for the clarification. I'll revise the interview. I saw Bruce pick up a book and look for the info on Barney's b-day so just assumed that it was accurate...well I guess you know what they say about assuming!

    Thanks again and I'll be sure to fact check everything from now on!

    Take care.

    sorry didn’t mean to be a dick …. May have come off as one.

    But I do know that Barney hung with Charlie Christian and played on some of the early Parker dates among other things, so instantly that one clanged when I read it. Would also explain why Bruce thought he was so much older… he was!

    No worries Christian...I didn't get that sense at all. And of course you were correct to point it out, I would have done the same. I guess in the heat of the moment things go amiss. It as been rectified and I scolded Bruce...just kidding of course

    Thanks again for checking out the interview and if you ever do come across any inconsistencies again on JGL, please feel free to let me know...it would greatly appreciated

    Take care.
