Today we’re listening to Jack Wilkins, an American jazz guitarist from New York. Born in 1944, he picked up guitar at age 13, inspired by Django Reinhardt and Johnny Smith. His first solo album, Windows, came out in 1973 and was reissued by Mainstream Records in 2018. It showcases Wilkins’ “stoned, leisurely playing,” as Passion of the Weiss put it, and performs compositions by Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, and Freddie Hubbard.
Have a really nice Wednesday.
