The Red Guitar; Written & Performed by Guitarist Bruce Forman Wed., Jan. 8th 7PM @ The Green Room 42

Imagine receiving an invitation to a gala featuring John Coltrane, Sigmund Freud, and Faust. Bruce Forman's "The Red Guitar" is all that and more. It draws on Forman's decades of experience as a formidable jazz guitarist and his considerable skill as a storyteller and teacher, producing a work that is greater than the sum of its dazzling parts. Enlisting the full power of the jazz idiom and integrating it with seasoned and provocative story-telling, he confronts the dilemma of artistic obsession face-to-faceóby creating a work of art that simultaneously explores and demonstrates the hold that music has over its most ardent followers. The Red Guitar: Do you play it...or does it play you?
