Ed Bickert by Roly

Canadian Ed Bickert is one of the all-time great jazz guitarists. A very quiet, modest man he has graced the Canadian jazz scene for fifty+ years but I read somewhere that, sadly, he has totally retired now, depressed by the death of his wife about five years ago. All he ever seemed to play was an old beat up 60s Fender Telecaster but from it he extracted a gorgeous warm tone with which he created his lyrical melodic lines and tasteful, subtle comping. He worked with all the top mainstream Canadian and USA players - his recordings with Paul Desmond regarded as classics. Definitely a unique player worth checking out. For more info go to this link .
Hear him play 'You'd be so nice' (to come home to).
