Default Stanley Jordan Trio (drums, upright bass, 2 guitars)

The Stanley Jordan trio performing Autumn Leaves (1991).
Stanley Jordan on guitar(s), bass: Charnett Moffett, drums: Kenwood Dennard.
Trio handling 4 instruments simultaneously? Some can do it ;-)

Such talented musicians delivering proof, if proof were needed, that just because you can do something does not mean that you should.

Obviously I'm very immature as a musician, because to me that just sounded like 7 minutes of musical circle jerk.

And if you're going to play a guitar that's processed to sound like a vibraphone, why not just play a vibraphone in the first place?

1) MIDI can implement much more than a vibraphone sound. It can even sound like a regular electric guitar if you want it to. It was Stanley's musical choice, that's why.

2) Then check out his cover of Stairway To Heaven where he's using regular guitar sounds throughout. BTW, the vibraphone sound didn't get too much use by him. I can't judge whether you're immature as a musician but you certainly have your opinion. Maybe that cover will change it ;-)

Well recreating different sounds on the 'wrong' instruments has one advantage: You can apply existing skills so there's no need to learn a new instrument. Makes sense, doesn't it? How creative is it to play one's instrument while sticking to the 'conventions' all the time? Experimenting with sounds is one way to break the rules. Don't we do this as drummers, too? Think of adding elements that weren't part of the drumset when it first originated. Nothing wrong with this.

I always liked Stanley; He is on his own musical trip.
He plays the way that he wants to. He likes to slap his guitars.
If that's what he likes to do then more power to him.
