Perhaps best known as an electric avant-jazz player, Sacramento’s Ross Hammond has long been a devotee of the acoustic guitar. His newest release, Flight, showcases his improvisational prowess across an engaging collection of solo-acoustic instrumentals. Hammond talked to us about his guitar influences, the development of his playing style, and the psychology of free improvisation. He also delivers three top-notch performances (on a Martin 12-string and a vintage Kay six-string) including two traditional spirituals and one original composition. If you don’t know this captivating, thought-provoking performer, be sure to check this out.
