John Cratchley I found Jesse's 'Folkadelphia' set and was impressed enough to check out his other recordings...this really took my attention.
There is some beautiful playing (picking) here with enough occasional dissonance and left-field diversion to make things really interesting.
It's such a hard field to be distinctive within but Jesse handles it just fine...his own style,his own sound (although I think I hear the shade of Pierre Bensusan sometimes)...
