“Six Strings, Six Stories” in Tannersville church

Sunday, July 23: In a kind of musical history lesson, jazz guitarist Alex Wintz traces the lineage and progression of the art of the jazz guitar by focusing on the work of six pivotal innovators (nine, actually, as Wintz gets a little clever with his math). Wintz will examine legends Eddie Lang, Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, the “Big Three” of the modern jazz guitar (Metheny, Scofield and Frisell) and, in a curious inclusion, the Brazilian nylon-string jazz guitarist and singer Toninho Horta.
