Charlie Ballantine

REVIEW: Charlie Ballantine, 'Providence,' Self-Released >>

Charlie Ballantine, 26, is one of those new breed of guitarists unafraid to incorporate non-jazz into his jazz. So like Bill Frisell and John Scofield, he's widened his palette to include rock, tango, funk, atmospheric instrumental pop and blues. Alternately playful and intense on his self-released `Providence,' he's upped the ante from his 2015 'Green' debut.
