“American Songbook” standards
Jaume Llombart guitar
When talking about a musician and his respect for tradition, he is thinking about language, not custom. The transmission of the codes and uses of a specific music is, in most cases, a dashed line in which the artist chooses one or more segments to be embedded as a starting point. It’s not like when your father teaches you to fish, it’s more like zapping from the couch.
Above languages there is another tradition: To make everything you play sound as good as possible. The breath, the generosity, the imagination, the sincerity. And that line is not made up of points. It is ubiquitous.
