Sorry V_50, your tribute without a sample of his Green's work piqued my curiosity, here is a Freddie Green , big band sound, had he lived he would have been 100 this year.

Count Basie - The Elder (Freddie Green Chord Solo)

Django was a family friend of Lindsey Buckingham's parents and a frequent visitor. I wish I had a family friend like that dropping by.

This thread should be filled with Jimmy Page videos.

No need for anymore posts. This one wins, although I don't know his name.

Tony MacAlpine
Best or not best, I don't know. But I love what he is doing as a composer and as a performer.
Especially his early works.
Just listen to his Maximum Security 1987 -- that's a masterpiece!

Interseting enough is the Cab project, where he also plays the guitar.

This guy played some of the most beautiful guitar tunes ever... Coming notably from irish and celtic traditional music even if he is a french algerian jew. I get interested in that kind of music because of him.

Check also Le voyage pour l'Irlande, Cowboy Be Bop, Près de Paris/Reels, Wu Wei, Rakish Paddy, Heman Dubh... If you play and need his tabs, just ask me...

Danny Gatton was a monster! His "Redneck Jazz" was scary-good at times. Too bad about how it all ended, though.
