Abe Lagrimas Jr. is always fascinating to watch and we have recorded his live performances a number of times. This was 2010 at our live music coffee shop to give you an example of Abe's jazz sensibilities. He has been working on this book for the past two years and it is a real tool that can take your playing to the next level.
