The best jazz guitarist you've never heard of!

Post by radioeng2 » Fri Dec 25, 2015 5:27 pm

Ernest Ranglin. He is so unassuming it'd be easy to miss how many styles he can play with such fluid ease. But if you look around, you'll find out the musicians know who he is and how good he his. Not to mention for how long! Maybe the best musician to come out of Jamaica they say... It's also said he was a real guiding influence on the music side anyway for who is probably the most famous musician out of Jamaica...that dope smokin' dude.

Here he plays with another from Jamaica...a whiz on the piano, Monty Alexander. This is from a session on a release from AIX Records that you can get in Hi-Def...video and audio!

I still think Ernest looks a little like Red Foxx. :lol:
