Sylvain Luc Plays Solar (Miles Davis) Slap Guitar Wise

Sylvain Luc is a French guitarist who studied at the Academy de Bayonne as a child. He masters guitar, violin, mandolin and cello (and I was complaining I had to study piano as a second instrument :-) In this video he plays Solar, an original by Miles Davis. I don't like the sound of his guitar too much (what's with the buzzing high E string?), but his incredible technique totally makes up for it. Somewhere in the middle of the video he starts to play slap guitar, very impressive!

Thanks for posting this, it's good to find some things about Sylvain Luc, in my opinion one of the best and fresh voices of contemporary jazz guitar. Just a notice: Solar was written by the great Chuck Wayne, as explained by himself in a Cadence interview. You can find the whole story at my blog:

Compliments for your blog, all the best
