Stanley Jordan Plays 2 Guitars at Once

Here's a video of Stanley Jordan playing Autumn Leaves at the Montreal Jazz Festival. Stanley Jordan is known for his piano-style jazz guitar playing, and in this video he plays on 2 guitars at the same time. There's a guitar on a stand, on wich he plays the single note lines and one around his neck that is used for chord accompaniment. What he does is simply amazing! I wonder though if I would like his music without the visuals and without knowing that it is tap guitar that I am listening to. His music never really touched me, but it's been a long time since I last checked him out and I must say this version of Autumn Leaves swings a lot and Stanley plays a great solo. Also check out the bass player, he swings as hell.
