Slide Guitar Bliss

I was blessed to be asked to introduce Debashish Bhattacharya's show at Seattle's Jazz Alley last night. Today I'm still floating from the amazing joy and chemistry expressed by the Indian slide guitar master and his tabla-playing brother Subhashis Bhattacharya. Their US tour continues tonight in San Francisco (see more dates below), but for now, a few images from the show. Note the unique guitar design, and the unusual slide ukulele.
