Gary Wittner

Too Modern for Me

Invisible Music Records

Some artists love to recreate the warm and authentic tone of Golden Age records, and this is definitely the case of Gary Wittner, a talented performer who has just released a fantastic new album in the vein of Thelonious Monk.

This record is a really amazing combination of modern jazz and old-school vibes, and one of the most intriguing aspects of Wittner’s music is definitely his guitar tone. He reminds me of some of the classic greats of the genre, ranging from Charlie Christian to Tal Farlow, and pretty much everything in between.

As the title of this release suggests, the songs have a nice classic style, although Wittner is an innovative and creative guitar player who always love to spice up his sound with fresh ideas and new groundbreaking creative solutions. This is definitely a holy grail recording for people who can’t get enough of simply great guitar playing.
