AWARD WINNING GUITARIST VERNON NEILLY FEATURED IN MARCH ISSUE OF JAZZ IMPROV MAGAZINE


Vernon Neilly

Los Angeles, CA (BlackNews.com) - Vernon Neilly, the black award winning guitarist and actor (Along Came Polly, Starsky and Hutch, Walk Hard, One On One) is certainly not a stranger to lots of media attention, and it seems like this trend is not going to let up anytime soon. Vernon is currently featured in one of jazz's most respected magazines Jazz Improv Magazine, where he gives a detailed interview about his amazing new CD honoring the "Master Blaster" Stevie Wonder, his influences musically, his mentors, and what he feels about the current state of the music and entertainment business.

Vernon Neilly & Friends A Tribute To Stevie Wonder which features other highly respected artists from 3 continents has been reviewed as one of the most diverse works of the catalog of Mr. Wonder, as it includes hits like "Superstition" done in a heavy rock format, "Boogie On Reggae Woman" done is a rocking guitar instrumental format, "Sir Duke" in a brilliant pop vocal format, and other classic hits done musically like they have never been heard before.

Vernon says "If you are one of those people who like's to hear music that sounds the same from track to track, then this CD is not for you, because it covers a fast spectrum musically. It's very entertaining." Vernon was also honored recently by being asked to do an interview in India's oldest English speaking publication The Statesman, which has been in circulation for 133 years to a readership of more than 500,000 per issue. This interview also talks about the Stevie Wonder project, but in more detail, Vernon also talks about the type of gear that Vernon uses for recordings, and live performances, and the companies that he endorses. When it rains it pours literally, Vernon is also featured on the front page of the world leading guitar pickup maker, the Seymour Duncan website. Vernon has proudly been a loyal Duncan endorser for many years, stating "they are family." (www.seymourduncan.com/news/kellie/weekly_update)
