DANGER. WARNING. ATTENTION. LOOK OUT. BEWARE
There's really nothing I can do but warn you. You're bound to be blindsided. There's no way you can see this coming. There you are, bumping along, listening to Adrien Moignard and Rocky Gresset lay waste to the Jazz standard Cherokee by Ray Noble, and you're wondering exactly how inventive a person can get on the guitar, and then, like a turd in the fondue pot, THERE'S A BASS SOLO AT FOUR MINUTES, AND IT LAST FOR TWO, MIND-NUMBING, SOUL-DESTROYING MINUTES, WHILE ACTUAL MUSICIANS LOOK ON IN HORROR.
