Three of my favorite guitarists. If you’ve never heard their brilliant Friday Night in San Francisco, consider it a must. Astounding performances.

I first heard Friday Night in San Francisco in 1986 while in the south of France. I was studying in Toulon for a summer and made friends with students from Senegal, France and Morocco.

One of my friends, Thierry, gave me a cassette of FNiSF, and I have loved it ever since. It has such an airy feel. The performances are impeccably precise and passionate.

I could be sweating in old clothes mopping our kitchen floor-- but with that music playing I am suddenly back on the Côte d’Azur.

Thanks for the memories.
