I’ve got a feeling I’ll give away the “Mingering Mike” book this time.
Here’s the contest: Click here, listen to the audio track, then tell me who that guitar player is.
The first person to put the musician’s name in the comments section will win a copy of the great new book about D.C.’s imaginary soul superstar, the one and only Mingering Mike. (There’ll never be another one like him… because he never existed in the first place!)
UPDATE (04/26/07): We have a winner. Pandyora correctly identified the artist as Bill Frisell.
This track, “Blues Dream,” is from his 2001 CD “Bill Frisell with Dave Holland and Elvin Jones.”
Feels like it belongs in a David Lynch movie, doesn’t it?
