Program #2021

It’s Part five of the New Sounds Live/New York Guitar Festival Marathon Concert, a nine-hour extravaganza recorded in January 2002 at the 92 Street Y. The program consists entirely of "covers." Electric guitarist Russell Donnellon, who uses elements of jazz and flamenco, teases out inner harmonic lines from Radiohead's "Karma Police." Michael Manring plays Bach and The Beatles on electric bass guitar; The Brazilian Guitar Quartet also plays Bach; while the Andy Summers Trio peels through the Monk and sails across Mingus. Monk is also in Alex De Grassi’s set. Finally, Bill Sims, Jr. does Hank Williams’s "Jambalaya."
