    I got called up one night to sit in with Charly Baty at a bar gig. He is an absolute monster player. First tune was a fast swing in B flat and he played a head then layed in some Django runs that were stunning. I replied with a country flavored solo that used diminished runs over the head. He liked it and gave me another pass. We finished and the leader "Sugar Ray" gave me a slow blues number. Charly cut loose and gave a clinic. I followed that by not trying to compete.I played some Roy styled licks and double stop bends. Then i sat down and Duke Robillard came up! The house guitarist was Tom Ferraro who is also outrageous. We all had 56 goldtop les pauls as well. Looked awesome. It was pretty humbling and inspiring to hold my own with those cats.
