    This is a compilation from the sessions for the album Quartett by Frank Kuruc, a Slovakian guitarist living in Germany. He's playing a Sadowsky Semi-hollow and I think he gets just fabulous sounds from it. I've bought the album and I think it's strong all the way through. Some wonderful modern sounds and compositions with some great playing by the entire quartet.

    That was good. I'll have to look into his work. I see that he also teaches at the Mannheim university.

    It's amazing how many good musicians there are out there who doesnt get more than local recognition, if that

    I liked the video. His tone is not that typical muted jazz thing - it's got more of an acoustic twinge to it. Thanks to JS for the heads up.

    I'm glad to see that a few folks are picking up on this one. I'm really enjoying the album a lot. It has a really nice connection between the modern and the traditional without making any obvious compromises. It gives it a very honest feel. And the level of the playing by all four of them is just spectacular.
