Jesse Cook set to play Boulder Theater / Boulder Weekly

Bookmark and Share

Somewhere just past the two minute mark of "Tommy and Me," one of the middle-stretch cuts on world music guitarist Jesse Cook's latest CD, One World, a fleeting bit of guitar phrasing streaks by what would normally sound a little out of place on one of Cook's recordings. It's a yawning, urgent, step-and-a-half string bend. A closer listen would reveal that, not only was a blue note gracing the solo real estate on the track, but it was actually ripped off a steel-string guitar. Cook, of course, is a nylon string player, and he has been for decades.
