Incredible Solo Jazz Guitarist [Video]

This guy is incredible! John Phil Wayne is a guitarist from London, England who has been pursuing a career as a solo jazz guitarist since 1961. He plays walking bass, chords and solo improvisation at once in a way and with a speed I have never seen before. He has a very strange, but very effective right hand technique. He really deserves his nickname: Thousand Hands.

Check out this clip of John Phil Wayne playing a fast blues:

Great Version of So What by Miles Davis [Video]

Here's one of the best versions of So What that has been captured on camera. Personally I find the Kind of Blue times Miles Davis' best period. Miles plays a very nice solo on this take, he's totally focused and every note he plays is meaningful. The same goes for the solos of John Coltrane and Winton Kelly, great stuff.
