We’ll hear musical tributes aplenty on this New Sounds program, many of them by guitarists heaping their thanks to other artists.  We’ll hear notes of appreciation from Michael Hedges to Pierre Bensusan, from Bill Frisell to Boubacar Traoré, from trumpeter Dave Douglas to Bill Frisell, and a little exchange between Stefan Grossman and John Fahey.  Plus, tributes to Angelique Kidjo, Leo Kottke, and Philip Glass, and a few others.
