Adam Smale (3/4/14)



Remembering 2014 - Adam Smale

Pat Martino called Adam Smale ‘an exciting new voice on the scene’, and we of course always agree with Pat Martino. Adam brought us his seasoned and sultry record OUT OF THE BLUE in early 2014. Composed and performed by Adam and his quartet, the record is a delightful and intense journey through jazz guitar in Adam’s unique finger style technique. Check Adam’s book on guitar right here, and drop in to listen and support right here.
