Jazz fiends and guitar nerds will get an extra buzz from this week's episode, featuring singer/songwriter and dexterous axe-man Zane Carney, who you might know from his solo work, his band Carney or him touring as part of John Mayer's band for the past few years. Zane and host Jeremy Dylan break apart of the classic 1965 live album from jazz guitar god Wes Montgomery "Smokin' at the Half Note".
Along the way, they talk about how playing jazz can influence playing pop, extended harmony, the chemistry between Wes and the Wynton Kelly Trio, sleeping with your favorite musicians and Zane explains and demonstrates why Montgomery's guitar style was so unique.
