In keeping with tradition, Buscarino Guitars held its annual Jazz Guitar Concert on the Friday evening before the Classic American Guitar Show. Scheduled to appear were Barry Greene, Craig Wagner and Russell Malone.

The Barry Greene quartet opened the concert playing songs from Barry's latest CD entitled "Sojourner." Barry is a jazz educator at the University of North Florida and spends (according to him) ALL his time there. This is unfortunate, as he is an extremely gifted and talented guitarist. Anyone in the Florida area should seek him out!

Due to another commitment, Craig Wagner was unable to make the show. In his place, however, Gene Bertoncini and Kenny Poole both played a few solos arrangements and then shared the bandstand together. For those of you familiar with Gene and Kenny, you know they never disappoint.and didn't.

The headline for the evening was the Russell Malone quartet. Many know of Russell from his playing with Diana Krall. The quartet mostly played tunes from Russel's latest CD - "Sweet Georgia Peach." If you haven't heard this CD, I recommend it highly. Russell is an extremely talented guitarist and his original material is fantastic. Russell will be touring with his quartet later this year.
