    Is Wayne Krantz the bandname, the song title or the influence?

    Catchy tune.
    Kind of an edgy Snarky Puppy type outfit.

    It's a pretty good reminder that there is a sea of guitarists and only one Wayne Krantz.

    Digging this a lot. Thanks for posting.

    After a Ringers show, my buddy described the three guitarists along the lines of "Landau is the guy who steps the occasional toe over the line, Herring dances back & forth across the line, Krantz says 'come over here and look at this line' and while you're looking, smacks you across the head and runs away laughing."

    Edit: That drummer is a BMF

    Big fan of Wayne Krantz. And that trio with Tim Lefevre and Nate Wood is insane.

    Side note I really dig Krantz super bright/edgy/throaty tone he gets from his strat+Marshall combo. Funnily it's sort of the opposite of the traditional jazz guitar tone.

    1-Where is Krantz?
    2-what is this trend of leaving your mouth open while playing? It’s gross. That includes Rosenwinkle and Scofield. Stop it!!!
    3- That’s all!

    I know, right? I might even prefer him to Carlock, as great as he is.

    Yep, Nate Wood is incredible. What's even wilder is that he's an in-demand bass player in the NYC scene, too, and will often fill-in for Tim Lefebvre in Krantz' Trio.

    Ive spent a lot of time listening to Wayne K.
    His style was so odd when I first heard him. Completely original. I really like the whole thing.

    I took a lesson with him in person at his place in NYC in Nov 2018 during my annual trip to the city. Just me and him, two guitars, and a metronome in his living room. He comes across as super dry and a little detached in interviews but he was incredibly warm in person. I was more worried about him personally than I was playing for him but he was such a kind person, that faded. It ended up just two guys who play guitar talking about raising kids. We both have little ones still so we connected on that level before during and after the lesson

    Yeah, if you get a chance to see him, go. He’s a force of nature and one of the truly unique players in the history of guitar. He’s also a really nice guy.

    One of the highlights of my musical journey is the couple of years I spent studying with Wayne. This was late 80s/early 90s, before he was well known. He was still playing with Leni Stern, and I used to go see them every Sunday night at the 55 Bar.
    Although I don't play anything like him (I don't really even play anything approaching jazz anymore), I know those lessons are part of my musical DNA.

    Nate Wood looks a lot like Putin! It’s kind of scary.
    Great player though. Comrade.

    That’s pretty awesome. Would love to have a one on one lesson with him.
