Why hire Bobby Minger?
I have been playing jazz on the electric guitar for decades -- not just years. In the very beginning, I took music lessons from two tutors, one classical, the other jazz, but I ended up with a passion for jazz.
I remember reading books on guitar techniques that told me to keep my fingers running over the strings, and that is exactly what I do now when I play. If you give me an audition, you'll see that I run my fingers over the fretboard just as a pianist runs his fingers over the keys.
Take it from me I am an accomplished jazz guitarist with skills you should expect to see in any professional. If you like jazz standards rendered on the electic guitar, this page is for you.
One of the wonders of jazz is that it gives the musician all the freedom he needs to interpret his favourite tunes. A good jazz guitarist is not restricted by the melody on the music sheet. Instead, he presents his own interpretation in a way that pleases your ear, most probably depending on his inspiration of the moment as well as the mood of the audience. As he extemporizes, you hear not only melodies, but also impromptu variations, which, replete with semitones and complicated scales, tend to demonstrate a sophistication foreign to other types of popular music.
Well, I think that is what I would do, should I have the honor to perform for you. I render jazz standards on the electric guitar in a quiet, improvisational style that without question is congruous with the ambience of a hotel restaurant-bar. In addition, if I play along with a jazz pianist plus a drummer-percussionist, my guitar strains will blend in perfectly with the piano rendition, making the music even more colourful. Assuming you are a hotel manager, this proposition sure deserves your consideration, for I am confident that my music will boost your clientele. But what if it doesn't? In that case, you needn't pay me at all.
