Maurice Gordon Reggae InterviewMaurice Gordon is one of Jamaica’s best Reggae, Jazz, and Rock...guitarist. Second only, as he himself puts it, to Ernie Ranglin. Any style of music you can think of the man can play it.   He has played with Reggae super star Jimmy Cliff and many others. I had the wonderful privilege of seeing him play at the Emancipation Park in Jamaica a few years back and man what a treat it was. Maurice Gordon did not hear when the guitarist and singer he was suppose to backing, who was standing at the side of the stage, kept on going on about how good he was and indeed so he is.  Click the link for the Maurice Gordon Reggae Interview

 

Ernest RanglinThis is a very short interview with guitar legend Ernest Ranglin, done by Mike Collins for an article he was writing for Jazzwise magazine. It's not all of the interview, I have just transcribed the parts where he talks about his technique and guitar tutoring. As you know, Ernest Ranglin is one of the fathers of Ska, some say he developed it. He arranged the song My Boy Lollipop and was initially a mentor to Bob Marley and many others.  His contribution to music in general is great, all the jazz greats admired him, including George Benson and Wes Montgomery who was particularly astonished by his speed.  In fact, it's alleged that he was doing octaves long before Wes and others started doing it. Enjoy!
