Guitar Shorty and Hs Talking Guitar

Acknowledging that I am prone to exaggerations, and have been told same more than once on the home front, I’ve got to say that one of Guitar Shorty’s gun-slinging guitar solos last night was the best guitar playing I’ve ever seen in person. I closed my eyes during sections and followed his mastery and taste in the back reaches of my brain. The Club Cubano was packed with hundreds of blues lovers, and by the time Shorty came on, the crowd had coalesced into an organic whole, and the playing was brilliant. Chilón, who in a former life was a professional photographer in Mexico City, placed himself up front, and shot some great photos.
