... otherwise known as Mike McGuirk. ED FEW-QUALMS introduced Mike to me thusly: "Mike won the ISB jazz competition 4 or 5 years ago, was a student at North Texas State, moved to NYC not long after and generally is a wonderful player. He's got a few heavy credentials (John Abercrombie, Renee Rosnes), but is still doing the NYC bass player shuffle ie where is it and what does it pay." Treat yourself and give these tracks a listen. I especially liked the slow burn on the second track.... Thanks for these contributions, Mike!
