Last night was a jazz night. Thanks to a leaflet in Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club
I found out that Martin Taylor is doing a Solo Guitar Concert at artsdepot in London.
It was a very different performance, than the usual, as he was playing with his Peerless
archtop guitar directly plugged in the PA. He didn't use any effects at all, but instead he created
different layers of harmony and melody with his amazing technique.
Beautiful playing and great sense of humour as well.

driving the audience to burst into laughter all the time.
