Three legends, Fred Walecki, Kenny Burrell and Ken ParkerKenny Burrell couldn't be nicer. It was generous of him to support the showing by taking the time to attend and play for us.

Kenny Burrell plays Green Beam

Kenny Burrell plays Yo Yo

Geoff Cline plays YoYo Geoff owns YoYo. Geoff is an attorney/musician/entrepreneur that loves Ken's guitars.

Mitch Holder Mitch played some very tasty and articulate jazz styles for us. I think this is YoYo.

Jazz singer, guitar player  Diane Hubka I think that Diane is playing "Green Beam" here. She's a great singer that is too litle known. Check her out.

Green Beam, Stella and Yo Yo RelaxingFor this show, these were the hardest working guitars at NAMM! They deserve a little couch time...

Mattie Roberts Sister of Jay Roberts

Jay Roberts Jay Roberts is son of the famous jazz guitarist Howard Roberts. His sister and brother also play guitar

Jim Soloway Jim is a great builder and a great player. He gave a mini concert, playing solo guitar for about half a dozen tunes as we listened, mesmerized.

Ben Lacy and Jay Roberts. steamin'... These guys play together about once a year, but they're so connected that it's unreal. astounding groove that won't quit.

 Ken and his new

We had a blast at NAMM and very much enjoyed seeing old friends, meeting new friends and hearing so many different players on Ken's guitars. The Westwood Music event was really something with Kenny Burrell showing up and just flooring us with his playing. In the room at the Hilton, there was some of the best music ever made. Thanks to all who came by and played or listened. photos to see them larger.
