Show Notes

The virtuoso guitarist and composer with Woodenhead and the New Orleans Guitar Masters has spent a lifetime exploring the possibilities of the instrument. He’s scaled the heights of instrumental jazz/rock with Woodenhead and luxuriated in the introspection of his solo acoustic work, all while swimming against the pop music tide. Tonight Jimmy paddles as fast as he can to keep his head above the turbulent waters of the Troubled Men Podcast.
