Ahhhh. . . .you've got good taste.  Christy Doran was the guitarist for the
German band "OM" which recorded I believe 4 albums in the 1970s, and
included Ursi Leimgruber on sax.  They were WAY ahead of their time!!!
Since then, he has done an album on ECM that's a MUST BUY:  The title, in
German, is something like "Music for guitar, 2 contrabasses and drums" and
it features Bobby Burri (the old OM bassist) and Freddy Studer (OM's
drummer who also has played with Eberhard Weber and some other ECM 
Lately, Christy's been doing albums for JMT and Hat Art, one of which is
solo guitar with some nice looping.  Good luck finding these, though.
