Agreed,42 JV is a great player. His approach couldn't be much more different from his brothers. Concise, interlocking solos with wicked tone and infectious grooves. Actually one of the things I liked about SRV is that for all his chops he would occasionally back off and just play very slow and soulfully. Check out their excellent Family Style duet album. vl. (And fie on the previous correspondent who characterised BB King as repetitous *g*. One of the most lyrical and beautiful players that ever lived. Listen to Live at the Regal and particularly How Blue Can You Get.
