Intimate Swing

 

continued

Eventually the couple moved to the East Coast, where they work with a wide range of artists of all generations playing jazz, Brazilian music, and the classics. Michéle now plays an eight-string guitar of his own design-it offers the player a seventy-eight-note range, only one octave less than a grand piano. With no frets under the lowest two strings, it's a perfect match to Ramo's complex, pianistic guitar style, allowing him to play single lines, chords, and a walking bass line all at the same time.

Belgrave and Ramo are coming on Friday, March 13, to Kerrytown Concert House to celebrate their new recording, The Song Is You: A Tribute to Lawrence G. Williams.    (end of article)
