Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue is one of the greatest guitar jazz albums of all time.

Can't disagree. Joe, check this out:
Kenny Burell/John Coltrane

It's an article on a good (not great) album from my favorite jazz site. I've learned a lot there. It's tough to get two legends in perfect step.

Sorry for being a jerk and flying off the topic before. Hope you'll forgive me!

Also,

The Sugar Nut himself plays some pretty nasty Didgeridoo.

I'm gonna try and dig something up for you guys to listen to.



Here we go:

"Me In The Bucket" MySpace

Didn't know that MySpace site was still up because this band doesn't even exist anymore.

Click the song "Mad Elephant On My Ass" and listen to The Sugar Nut on the Didgeridoo.

I just started getting into the duo of Strunz and Farah, two really amazing guitarists.

Sometimes, the coolest way to consider an artist is how he or she affects the company around them. Piano trios circa 1959. Bill Evans Trio: Bill Evans, piano - Scott LaFaro, bass - Paul Motain - drums. "Sunday At The Village Vanguard"
Gloria's Step
recorded on a summer Sunday in Greenwich Village, 10 days before the untimely death of LaFaro.

To me, LaFaro and Evans were truly psychic - as close as two musicians get.

BTW, this tune I took off my own vinyl (yes, vinyl), so I can promise you it is malware-free.

I totally forgot to include some of my favorite ambient musicians!

If you're into drone-mind-altering-blissful music check out Windy & Carl...don't listen while driving, though.

(to be fair, they didn't write the original melody, but if you like this, you'll love everything else by them)

This isn't technically instrumental, but everything else HAMMOCK does is and this song is just incredible:

And if you like film music and Don't know Brian Eno You're in for a big surprise:

The best instrumental album I've heard in a while is Potato Hole by Booker T. Jones. Hammond organ lead backed by Neil Young and Drive-by Truckers.

Also Rodrigo y Gabriela have a couple of really good classical guitar instrumental albums. They're a mix of original songs and metal/rock covers.

Here is a cool clip I pulled up of Edgar Meyer, the foremost classical bassist to ever live goofing off with Victor Wooten, mentioned earlier.

The first time I saw him play I cried.

Jake Shimabukuro can flat out play. If he were a guitarist, everyone would probably know about him but he's from Hawaii and plays the Ukulele.
