Apparently, Brian was channelling early swing guitar genius Charlie Christian during the recording of Intermission.
“I used an old Gibson Super 400 with the floating pickup,” he says before zeroing in on his favourite part of the tune. “I really like the bridge with that whole tone scale.”
Another original Setzer track, Intermission features a brilliant duet between Brian’s Gibson guitar and a vibraphone played by a fella called Steve Yeager, who plays for the symphony orchestra in Brian’s adopted home of Minneapolis.
“You don’t hear that sound very often.” says Brian. “Guitar and vibes... it just works!”
