Hot licks and a new CD

Local guitar whizz Jim Kelly has been trading jazz licks with young guitar hotshot Matt Smith for some time now. Jim plays acoustic guitars while Matt (a former student of Jims) fingers the electric. What comes out is some spine-tingling stuff much of it based on Jims original compositions.

The duo has just released an album called Onwards & Sideways.

You can watch the musical sparks fly when the pair launches the CD at the Ballina Hotels Jazz N Blues Lounge this Saturday, March 22, from 6.30pm; and at the Winsome Hotel in Lismore next Tuesday, March 25, from 8.30pm ($10/7).
