Meaning the other day I'm watching Great Guitars of Jazz (Tal Farlow, Herb Ellis and Charlie Byrd). My wife asks if any are still alive. I tell her no, all have moved to play that gig in the sky. She asks some of my other favorites, I state naming Miles, Cannonball, Coltrane, Montgomery, etc. She asks if they were gone to, I told her just about every one of them. She mentions that I am such an old soul. Any of you guys here really just favor players that were gone when you were just learning to play?
