Just a thought...

Kenny Burrell produces the masterpiece "Midnight Blue" and Van Morrison "leans heavily" on it to produce "Moondance". Surprised

Kenny Dorham comes up with the standard "Blue Bossa" and Gary Moore is "inspired" to produce "Parisienne Walkways". Shocked

So if you're a jazz guy named Kenny.......

And you compose a tune with "Blue" in the title....

Better watch yo' ass, 'cos one day some Irish dude is gonna rob you blind. Laughing

As I say, just a thought on a quiet Friday afternoon......

I spose John McLaughlin may well have Irish antecedents.

Have you noticed that there is a disproportionate number of Italo-Americans involved jazz guitar as players, luthiers and even string manufacturers

Kenneth Gorelick, Kenny G. to you and me, ought to worry but not when he looks at his bank balance.

You mean like D'Leco? LOL. I have noticed it but I don't know the reason. I'm Italian-American myself. I could see myself building a guitar, though I've never done it. I got halfway through building a mandolin once though. Does that count?

Well there's John Pizzarelli and Tony Mottola. You could maybe count Al DiMeola and Tommy Tedesco.

...and Al Caiola, Al Casamenti, Don Arnone, Tony Rizzi, and Ralph Casale.

Com'on paisans, you can think of more. Guitar is in the blood, like art, wine and women....oops, I mean, song! Very Happy

P.S. Why the question marks after Sal Salvador's name?

Oops, almost forgot Chieli Minucci, Gene Bertoncini, Joe Diorio and Birelli Lagrene.

...and I used to think Italians only played the accordion (j.k.)

Well according to this he is, although Martino was apparently not his real name.
