I first became aware of John’s playing from his work with the Hellecasters and the Desert Rose Band. I played that first Hellecasters disc over and over when it was first released..!!
What I did not know until recently is that John is also an amazing Gypsy Jazz player. His current band the John Jorgenson Quintet has released two albums this year; “One Stolen Night”, and “Istiqbal Gathering” on which he played guitar, bouzouki, clarinet, and soprano saxophone. Talk about talent….!!
