A british jazz-rock guitarist
. He grew up listening to jazz
and originally wanted to become a saxophone
player. His love of the sax
shaped his unique approach to guitar playing, which is often described as very fluid and legato
-like, sometimes unpredictable. He is also notable for his use of the SynthAxe
, which enabled him to use a breath controller
to shape notes after playing them.
Through the years, he has played with the likes of Tony Williams, Bill Bruford, Jeff Berlin and Frank Gambale.
