The summit features a variety of genre including jazz guitar, flamenco, blues, roots, and “free” music, and includes African string instruments, electronic applications, and advice on guitar purchasing, tuning, and maintenance.

The featured artist, Larry Coryell, is a pioneer of jazz-rock and deserves a special place in the history books. In the 1960s, he brought a unique sensibility to jazz electric guitar playing. Musician magazine named him to its list of 100 greatest guitarists alive today, and after releasing more than 60 albums as a leader and playing on dozens more as a sideman in the last 40 years, Coryell has definitely earned that honor. Exploring the sound of the six-string in an extraordinary number of settings, he's done straight-ahead jazz, classical-influenced solo guitar, funk- rock fusion, light pop, and guitar duos and trios with some of the top names in jazz.
