    Oh yeah I read this a few years back, changed my life. John P sometimes plays this way iirc, as does James Chirillo.

    BTW I’m fairly sure FG is is not playing this way on the early Basie stuff. Check out Savory Collection vol2. FG is very audible and playing I think bigger chords. Also there is shit ton of absolutely burning Prez on that live recording.

    I think you're right, at least to my ears...sometimes I can't tell what I'm hearing on those records and what I'm "filling in."

    He was definitely playing all six strings a lot of the time...

    Freddie's style evolved. When he was with a smaller group (The Kansas City Seven) he had more room.

    What a Class Act! So impressed not only by John Pizzarelli's guitar playing,but his openness to music and people interested in it at all levels.
    This is what music is about and making connections with people. Unfortunately most rock musicians not only have much more limited vocabulary, but limited experience with connecting to with their actual audience members.

    I'm so lucky to have discovered Jazz music at an early age. It has allowed me to continue to grow as a musician. Unfortunately with rare exceptions,it doesn't offer much monetary rewards. But the musical education and journey is so worthwhile and frustrating at times LOL!

    I often use the term walking tenor to describe FG's playing, as opposed to walking bass, with his emphasis on the fourth string in counterpoint to the bass. Is walking tenor a useful term, do you think, or misleading?

    Not to be mistaken with the Great Gazoo, a different order of magnitude in the pop culture firmament.

    I have a VHS rip and wondered if any type of tab booklet accompanied the video. Did your copy come with any music notation?

    Was that ever offered on DVD?
