About Ghost Jazz Trio

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. In the late seventies James was fortunate enough to take guitar lessons from Bill Connors of Return to Forever fame. He lived in Santa Cruz, CA and drove to Half Moon Bay weekly to take lessons whereby he formed a close friendship with Bill. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Inner Mounting Flame Miles Davis, Bitches Brew Return to Forever, Returns (feat. Al Di Meola, Chick Corea, Lenny White and Stanley Clarke) These albums helped to form my approach to playing and composing. Just like the movie Cool Hand Luke, those bands taught me there are rules and then how to break those rules in regards to playing and composing music. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “On the Groove” On the Groove has a memorable melody, played with octaves like that of the great Wes Montgomery. The piano adds wonderful splashes of color. The guitar and piano solos are executed perfectly showing both chops and restraint.
