Jazz Weekly: Guitar Festival@Sam First Bar 11.30.23 (Review)

Sam First Club got the ball rolling by having its second annual “Guitar Summit”, this time featuring Angeleno Larry Koonse along with guests Peter Bernstein and Yotam Silberstein (Koonse did joke that he was changing his name to “Koonsenstein” for the occasion in order to keep with the team unity). Backed by bassist Mike Gurrola and legendary drummer Joe La Barbera, the eighteen strings created an opening 75 minute set that, if it’s a portend of things to come, looks like an advent calendar of swinging axes.
