Stompin' At The Savoy

Since the beginning of it's popularity in America early in this century, slide guitar - whether played on the lap or with a bottleneck - has undergone a profound evolution. Few modern guitar styles have such a complex history and the diversity of players who have adapted and interpreted the method in so many musical contexts.

The terms lap-style and bottle neck are useful in understanding how current styles of slide guitar playing were developed. Lap-style refers to the method where an acoustic or electric guitar built with high string action is laid flat on the lap and fretted with a steel bar of cylinder. Bottleneck is the term for playing a regular guitar with a metal or glass tube (such as the neck of a wine bottle of a glass medicine vile) slipped over the third of fourth finger of the left hand. Both techniques can sustain and bend notes in ways that emulate various nuances of the human voice.

Stompin' At The Savoy is the second volume in the World Of Slide Guitar series. This DVD brings us up to date with the music of five modern slide guitar masters whose playing perpetuates and transcends the traditions of their respective styles. The artistry of Mike Auldridge further refines the Dobro's musical savvy; Vishwa Mohan Bhatt exemplifies the beauty and virtuosity of slide guitar in Indian classical music; Bob Brozman reincarnates the early echoes of Hawaiian music and Delta Blues; Freddie Roulette puts a bluesman's spin on the electric steel guitar; and Martin Simpson revives acoustic bottleneck blues with a respectful nod to the past. the set of performances in this DVD enriches the vast genre of modern slide guitar and drives it on toward new musical expressions. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
