    Samo Šalamon, acoustic guitar

    The number of international musicians the guitarist Samo Šalamon has worked with is hugely impressive (Paul McCandless, Michel Godard, Tony Malaby, Tim Berne, Gerald Cleaver, Dominique Pifarely, Stefano Battaglia, Christian Lillinger...). The same applies to his discography, with more than forty titles in two decades. He has added three more titles to the list this year alone (until April), including the double album Dolphyology, on which Šalamon plays the legendary saxophonist’s works on the 6- and 12-string guitars. According to the guitarist, he “approached Dolphy's work either along the lines of free improvisation or by following harmonic structures” while seeking to “mentally free himself from the burden of playing the great legacy of solo guitar and, of course, Dolphy himself.”

    Due to the cancellation of his European tour Ben LaMar Gay will not perform at the 64th Ljubljana Jazz Festival.
