Winter NAMM| Summer NAMM


Academy Awards telecast 2004:

Eugene Levy (as Mitch, of Mitch and Mickie) used a Shubb Capo on A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow, from A Mighty Wind.

By the way, "Mark Shubb," in that film, is no relation. Anybody know how they came up with the name? If so, let me know.)   ...Rick

Me introducing John's Quintet onto the stage at the Station Inn

brian sutton

Flatpicking star Brian Sutton was on hand with some hot licks. John had assembled an all-star bluegrass group to close our show at the Station Inn. John played mandolin in that set, and Brian took over the lead guitar spot. Earlier in the evening , Brian showed us a lesser-know side of his guitar chops, as he took the rhythm chair in John's gypsy jazz quintet.

john capo

John introduced a new jazz tune he'd written that uses a capo. Quite unusual, and naturally I was pleased. He had not yet titled it, but it would later be named Ultraspontane, and would become the title tune of his quintet's second CD.

Since then he has played Ultraspontane at each of the concerts we have presented, often to close the show, and it continues to bring the house down.

I suspect he might have been thinking of me when he decided to put the capo on while writing this tune. If so, thank you, John. It is a great tune, and a great showcase for my capo in a style and context where you don't expect to see one.
