Sonny Sharrock - The Guitar Tone Legend

Do you know Sonny Sharrock? He was a magnificent jazz/blues guitarist.

He used to have awesome ideas on guitar riffs. After listening a few Sonny's records, I still have this sounds in my head. He was paying with  great timing and rhythm. Sonny's guitar tone was fat and rich, more typical for blues-rock players than jazzmen. The Gibson Les Paul was his main instrument, what is easy to hear in his records.

Sonny is well known also from his groovy soundtrack for Space Ghost Coast to Coast cartoon

Let's listen to some Sharrock's music:
