My favorite listen is Grant Green. I expecially dig how he could take soul and R&B songs and transform them into his own thing.

@burtf51 Cal Collins isn't one of my favorites, but he was damned good. The only time I heard his music, or heard of him, was once in the 70s when he played a local gig. He did a duo with a good player who was mainly a folk guitarist, so it was interesting to hear the two styles woven together sympathetically.

I had no idea I'd enter into this fun 'favorite' exercise and end up using the ignore feature for someone willfully increasing the noise in our signal to noise ratio, here.

In no particular order I guess Bill Frisell, Sonny Sharrock and Django.

Jazz guitarists who roll back the tone control on the neck pickup?
