Congrats to my very talented longtime student Andre' Hetu for getting accepted into the Summer Jazz program at Eastman School of Music, Rochester NY, and with a scholarship to boot. Andre' started studying with me at First Flight Music School East Village NYC in 2011 and have since been accepted to prestigious academic programs at Manhattan School of Music, NY Jazz Academy and New York's highly selective music high school program at the Special Music School, Kaufman Center. Most of all hats of to Andre' for in an age and time where clones, tricks and gimmicks are considered real, so courageously and consistently making the rare, beautiful choice to stick to his own truly unique musical voice. Can't wait to hear the music Andre' will be sending into the world and to us all in the future.

Right now in process CHORD SOLOS we've been working on realizing various harmonic paths through Hoagy Carmichaels American classic 'Georgia' (on my mind). THREE ( or almost ) OCTAVE TRIADS for electric BASS guitar-a great way to map the fretboard+learn about inversions too. Still lots of work on READING and SIGHT READING music. On the Rock guitar side we are as always returning to the source-THE BLUES. Meat 'n Potatoes-Dig ! Too many things in orbit to list so SEE YOU IN SESSION. stensguitarstudio.com/log.html

John Abercrombie Dead at 72

Modern jazz guitar giant and truly influential composer and bandleader for the past 50 years John Abercrombie just left this world. RIP and thanks for the music, and for inspiring us all. His contribution and lasting imprint on music of our time is immeasurable. All of his albums are highly recommended but essential for guitar players ( and really all musicians ) are the 1973-85 recordings and the trio albums Straight Flight, Timeless, Gateway, Gateway II and Current Events, the duo albums with John Scofield ( Solar ) and Ralph Towner ( Sargasso Sea and Five Years Later ) the solo album Characters and the Quartet albums Arcade, M, Quartet and Night. As a sideman : Jack De Johnettes 'New Directions', Jan Garbareks 'Eventyr', Enrico Rava's 'The Plot' and Kenny Wheelers 'Deer Wan' to name a precious few. http://www.spin.com/2017/08/john-abercrombie-dead-at-72/

John Abercrombie, renowned jazz guitar player, bandleader, and teacher, has died at the age of 72. He passed away yesterday evening at his home in Cortland, New York, according to an announcement on his page. The Ottawa Citizen and The Wire report the cause of death as heart failure, relate...
