Out of the Blue

Prior to relocating to the States, jazz guitarist/composer Adam Smale made a mark on the Canadian scene with his 2000 debut album, Fun City. Now based in NYC, he recently signed with noted indie label Ropeadope, and impressive second album Out of the Blue is already notching rave reviews Stateside. He plays a seven-string guitar with a lovely fluency and cites Lenny Breau as a crucial influence. A fine trio accompanies him here. A respected educator, the Humber grad has also published a book, New Approach to Scales for Guitarists. Smale gigs regularly in Big Apple clubs, and let's hope he gets some Canadian fest invites.
