Hailed as "the most inventive guitarist since Charlie Christian", Larry Coryell is not only a hero, but a living legend of the guitar. This is a fully and utterly deserved epithet for this "godfather" of fusion, a creator of subtle soundscapes and of riffs delivered at the speed of light that qualify as jewels of musical distinction! As he demonstrates once again in the framework of Three Guitars with Badi Assad and John Abercrombie, two of the sharpest guitarists on the circuit who joined him on the stage of the New Morning in 2004, Larry is one of the most engaging personalities of the jazz scene today - even if, like his late friend Frank Zappa, he is profoundly suspicious of compliments. His standard response to words of praise is: "Shut up and play!". So why don't we shut up and listen to Three Guitars.... Recorded live at the New Morning - Paris - June 2004.
