vic juris, neil innes: r.i.p.

THE NEW YEAR dawned with the news that a guitar giant had passed. Vic Juris, a distinguished sideman, devoted educator and underrated solo artist, died on December 31, 2019, in Livingston, New Jersey. He was 66. His wife, jazz singer Kate Baker, said the cause was complications from cancer. A consummate jazz guitarist, Vic was also versed in soul, rock and classical, a quality that made him an in-demand sideman. He performed with saxophonist Lee Konitz, pianist Peggy Stern and clarinetist/saxophonist Benny Waters, among others, but for much of his career Vic worked his magic with saxophonist/flutist David Liebman, with whom he began recording in 1991. No less a player than the late John Abercrombie said of him, “There is none better.” Vic was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, in 1953,…

He plays Zeppelin and Bon Jovi (Sambora) and other rock guitarists, but…

up close with stevie ray vaughan

IN MARCH 1983, Tracy Anne Hart was making her name as a live music photographer in Houston when she was hired to shoot an Austin guitarist scheduled to play at the local club Fitzgerald’s. The 29-year-old hotshot was going on tour with David Bowie, and the local alternative paper wanted some photos of him to go with its story. Hart accepted the assignment and soon found herself face to face with Stevie Ray Vaughan. Photographing the guitarist for the first time at the now-defunct club, Hart was aware that she’d discovered her muse. “I knew I’d found a musician with the incredible talent and style to give my Leicas a run for their money,” Hart writes. “I wasn’t iconic rock photographer Jim Marshall and I’d never even seen Jimi Hendrix play,…

HERSHEL YATOVITZ MAKES a writer’s job easy. “I’m a style slut,” he chirps, offering his own unique description for his wide-ranging and deeply textural approach to the guitar. “I kind of sweat style. I like soulful music that has a lot of open spaces to it. Some guitarists prefer this blitz of notes to get a point across, but I think you can do more to transport people if you offer them a mood and a point of view. To me, that’s a lot more rewarding.” Since 1995, Yatovitz has served as the lead guitar ace for vintage vibe specialist Chris Isaak in the singer’s band Silvertone. Whether tackling rock and roll classics, lost cowboy nuggets or originals that fuse Isaak’s affinity for Sun Records’ roots with a certain sense of…
