24 Sep Scott Sherwood | Guitar Nine
A Technical Mastery Of Jazz
In the improvisational style of Jim Hall and John Abercrombie follows Philadelphia-based guitarist and composer Scott Sherwood. On his first CD release, Siren Song Sherwood demonstrates his technical mastery of the guitar on six tracks of creative, inspired jazz improvisation. Siren Song was recorded with the Scott Sherwood Trio, consisting of Sherwood, Harold Miller on bass, and Terry Smirl on drums. Sherwood’s playing is subtle, yet highly impressionable on Siren Song, as he weaves both developed and free form solos throughout the pieces. The CD’s title track is an eleven minute masterpiece of beautiful and challenging music that will satisfy the most jaded of jazz guitar fans. Sherwood was originally profiled in the April-May, 1997 edition of The Undiscovered.
