“What connects the mastery of ragtime and gospel great Rev. Gary Davis, improvisation genius Lennie Tristano, jazz guitarist Attila Zoller, Portuguese composer Carlos Paredes, and master guitar luthiers Jimmy D’Aquisto and John Monteleone? This book looks into their world and art through my lens as a student, a friend, and as a musician who pays homage to them every time I pick up the guitar. Their originality provides inspirational lessons for music students as they move through their own creative journey”.Woody Mann
