I wanted to write something for my friend and fellow guitar player Brendan Odonnell. This kind of an open letter, as all blogs are I suppose.
This young man is an inspiration to me and many others I know. I just want to publicly acknowledge that he is amazing and innovative and that I have supreme confidence that none of it will go unnoticed by the world at large. Big things are in store for this guy and I am exited to see them manifest. He is a devotee of Peter Bernstein and Mike Moreno. Kind of an old meets new kind of a guy but he has his own unique personality that comes across in every note. I admire especially his rhythmic ferocity and seeming ease with modern sounds. His use of motives is very compelling and I feel that there is a personal narrative being delivered in every extemporaneous moment. You're fresh Brendan!!! That is all.
