Jimmy Ponder

Few guitarists today would dare even attempt an entire album of nothing but solos. Jimmy Ponder, however, is among the select few whose imagination, technique, sense of structure and swing that can sustain a solo album. One of the most talented guitarists in the evolutionary tree that sprang from the great Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Ponder is an exponent of the 'thumb' style of playing which became the trademark sound of his famous predecessor. Hence Jimmy produces a complex tapestry of textures in a rainbow's spectrum of colors that make this recording a standout, even in today's crowded field of jazz releases.
