Elliot Sharp - Undead Jazz Review

Undead Jazz Review - Issue #1

Downtown guitar guru Elliott Sharp has been displaying his mastery of the 6-string for decades. His style, which leaves no part of the fretboard safe from his incomparable wingspan, reaches into the deepest wells of the guitar, pulling out sounds and phrases previously unproduced. Leaping through a dozen genres in a single chord change, Sharp has the history of the instrument under his fingers. Here he presents his ideas through the framework of Thelonious Monk-a more spiritual than melodic homage - with ample space for interpretation.
