Wayne Krantz w/Keith Carlock & Nate Wood 

When: Sat., Sept. 29, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $15
When you think Fender Stratocasters and Marshall amps, modern jazz isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But Wayne Krantz, one of the greatest guitarists of the past two decades, isn’t your ordinary jazzer. Whether he’s supporting Steely Dan or Billy Cobham or performing with his own band, Krantz has one of the most unique and identifiable voices, weaving intriguing melodies with obtuse chord voicings and occasional dissonant intervals — rendered with the bell-like tone of a Strat (well, in his case a Tyler Studio Elite, which is essentially a boutique version of a Strat). His latest album, Howie 61, is unrelentingly adventurous, and features some pretty entertaining spoken-word interludes. If you’re a guitar geek or a jazz fan, this is a must-see show, assuming you can squeeze in behind the throngs of Nashville session cats (gladly) getting taken to school by Krantz and his equally accomplished rhythm section, bassist Nate Wood and drummer Keith Carlock.
