Bob Brozman RIP

Saturday, 4 May, 2013

“Constantly touring, he was a master of styles, playing everything from blues and jazz to calypso and gypsy swing, even experimenting in later life with modern hip hop and ska rhythms, on which his finger work was so rapid that many observers mistakenly assumed he was using electronic effects. Always acoustic, he was equally adept on mandolin and ukulele, but was best known for playing slide on the National steel resonator guitar — an instrument on which he became a leading authority as well as being one of its greatest proponents.” The Telegraph.

“Guitarist and ethnomusicologist Bob Brozman, who progressed from an early fascination with the delta blues of the South to a consuming passion for the traditional music of Hawaii and became a leading authority on the National steel guitar, has died. He was 59.” The Los Angeles Times.
