    Tom Waits' album "Alice" has no guitar on it, and it's one of my favorite albums.

    Yeah, Tom waits is one of my desert island artists, tons of great music from him, though a good bit of guitar on albums too.
    I'll have to check out these recordings when I have a chance.

    Otherwise Otis Redding came to mind, and also some of the great Hammond B-3 players organ trios are worth checking out.

    Man, Pharoah's playing on Satchidinanda is the motivation for playing similar lines and tones on guitar, especially the first two tracks. I haven't heard all of Alice’s work, but this is probably one of the most accessible, and she does indeed rock.

    Question is, did mullet boy grow out the mullet or clip it all off???

    Ha ha nope, Pharoah didn't take the Jersey out of the boy, but sure did fill him up with a whole 'nother view of music.
    For weeks if he dropped in he'd be mumbling about how the piece was "just perfect".
    Not the fur piece, the Pharoah piece.
    We're talking a pretty perfect mullet too though.
    Ear width till it got to maybe chin height, then flaring out at the bottom like a duck tail but way wider, and extra long. Epic quaff really.
    I almost felt bad, he'd arrived in "Boston" full of eager high hopes, but seemed to lose all his enthusiasm.
    He had said he wanted to teach guitar at Berklee IIRC.
    Hope he found his way...

    Now I'm recalling trying to get that stuff on guitar too.
    I actually used to play Tenor sax as well, and it was a little easier to get in the ballpark with the same instrument.
    If you have any suggestions for getting that huge of a tone with guitar, I'm all ears.
    LP territory I'd reckon.
    How 'bout Sonny Sharrock?

    Edit: Soprano sax on Satchidananda, right?
    I'm hearing Pharoahs tenor in my head.

    I can’t get there with a guitar—or else risk have a sound like Santana. That’s the inspirational part, just trying to get inside any of these guys’ heads. I believe it was soprano...

    Always wanted to play sax, but the old man directed me toward trumpet. Could of been worse, could of been tuba or French horn.

    I listen to a lot of Glenn Miller music... I love the arrangements and the sound. I also listen to a lot of Ragtime music... Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake etc... That's the foundation of Travis Pickin' which of course if the foundation of Chet.
