Re: vintage eh16

I had the pleasure of sharing the stage Friday night with Nels. We both  
played in the Vinny Golia Large Ensemble at the REDCAT Theater at the  
Disney Concert Hall.....Vinny wrote a kind of "double concerto" for  
Nels and Jeremy Drake (a fantastic young guitarist in LA.) They both  
did a lot of cool looping, Jeremy with a DL4 and Nels with that same  
lovely looper he's used for years...very creative guitars and  
electronics....with a 40 piece band as well....It will probably be  
released on NineWinds later this year.....worth checking out when it  
comes out.
