Andy Reiss Interview – Time Jumpers, Session Player – Everyone Loves Guitar #271
Andy grew up literally smack dab in the middle of the pop culture and music revolution of the late 1960’s and saw acts like BB King, Albert King, & Buddy Guy & Junior Wells in concert. Yet, oddly enough, he became infatuated with country music, which his older brother turned him on to.
Some great stories about moving to Nashville and a sort of “Baptism by Fire” when Andy found himself playing for a famous actor in his first session… and with literally the best players in Nashville at the time. A collector of vintage guitars, Andy shares his favorite guitars along with some interesting stories about how he acquired them… divorce, cooking, his maternal grandmother / guitar teacher, James Brown, and more. Rare interview with a First Call Nashville session player and original member of the Time Jumpers all-star western swing band. Listen up:
