(1902 - 1933)
The first jazz guitar virtuoso.
(From Joe Lano web site) - Internationally acclaimed guitarist, arranger, and orchestrator Joe Lano (Marghilano) is originally from Philadelphia, where he begun performing in nightclubs with own group at the age of 12. He studied guitar with Dennis Sandole and Joe Srgo, and orchestration with Richard Castiglione.
Born in Upper Saddle River, NJ in 1952, Ed began playing the guitar at age 12.
He studied with a fine local guitarist from Ramsey, Pat Vassalo and worked with him until he was sixteen. At that point, he took lessons with one of the areas best guitarists and banjo players, Bobby Domenic (uncle to jazz legend, Bucky Pizzarelli). Less than a year later Ed began studying under the guidance of Bucky Pizzarelli and started playing the 7 string guitar in 1969. Ed still studies with Bucky to this day.

(from artist's site) - Lorne Lofsky is a Canadian guitarist living in the Toronto area. He started out as a typical teenage rock 'n roll guitar player, playing in basement bands and at high school dances. In his late teens, no longer enamored with playing blues based rock music, a friend turned him on to Miles Davis's classic disk "Kind of Blue". Hearing this record was, for Lorne, a musical revelation that led to a dramatic change is his approach to playing music.
(from artist's site) - In the Basque region, where Sylvain Luc is from, there is music within the crystalline air. And there is song: full; lyrical; primal. Here, music is in the head long before it is under the fingers. Sylvain‚Äôs genius lies in putting melody always at the forefront of his compositions. It is only later that we become aware of his internationally praised virtuosity as an instrumentalist. ‚ÄúTechnique has never been my goal. Music is not a contest. You play music; you live music. Music should be shared ‚ÄĒ it shouldn‚Äôt divide people.‚ÄĚ
