Brian’s take on this 1938 jazz standard features some of his most mindblowing playing yet.
“I guess I wanted to prove to myself that I could play jazz,” laughs Brian, who used a rare D’Angelico hollowbody guitar for the recording.
“That’s a beauty,” he comments. “It’s a blond ’63 Excel cutaway. Some old guy in Florida had it. I didn’t steal it from him or anything! I paid a premium.”
Brian also plays his ‘Tribute’ Gretsch on the track. “When that comes in, it kind of slaps the jazz guitar in the face. It’s like: ‘Listen to this!’”
