I've Got A Thing About Ike Isaacs now!

Came across this photo of Ike Isaacs taken at an impromptu jam session pose on the Summerfield stand at the British Music Fair, London c. 1976. Left to right: Louis Gallo with CSL D Gypsy {sales tag still attached), Ray Gallo (playing an oval sound hole CSL Gypsy), Ike Isaacs and Maurice Summerfield on cutaway Electric Ibanez models.

Ike was regarded as an absolute master of guitar harmony. He was much repected by Joe Pass, Martin Taylor, Esmond Selwyn and many others and indeed seems to have had a guru like reputation as regards application of advanced harmonic principles to the guitar. I believe he moved out to Australia in later life and that Martin Taylor visted him, whenever he could. I remember his harmony lessons were in Crescendo magazine for many years.
A revered player.
