Default Acoustic Alchemy anyone?

I saw this band's show last night in Cincinnati from the third row, just left of centerstage. Totally worth the almost 200 mile drive (one way). Two guitars, bass, keys, and drums. Pretty much all instrumental, but for their style, vocals would be a distraction. Phenomenal playing by everyone, and the best bass playing, (Gary Grainger), for a whole show, I've witnessed since seeing Jaco with Joni. If you like modern, progressive, acoustic based jazz, look for them at a small venue near you. You'll be glad you did.

Wow, now there's a name blast from the past! I have several AA albums (on cassette tape no less, which should give you some idea of how old they are!). After Nick Webb passed away, I basically lost track of Greg Charmichael. It seems he kept the AA name, added some members to the band, and kept the party going.

As a result of your post, I'm going to pull out these tapes and give them a listen again. Stellar guitar work!

I own 38 guitars. Most are made of wood. Some are not.

Been listening to them since the beginning pretty much - have most of their music.

I play this concert for my clients a lot.

Also Simon James (original guitarist) plays in a band called Kymaera that has some nice stuff out.
