Masa Sumide & Michel Redd Sancerre

Tonight I’ve got a very special guitarist for you all the way from Japan. Masa Sumide is a groovemaster par excellence. He plays with finesse and flawless technique. He started out in the world of hard rock influenced by bands like Deep Purple, Led Zepplin, and Grand Funk Railroad. Later, he was influenced by jazz guitarist Joe Pass and acquired a jazz bent. He’s toured with Laurence Juber, Andy McKee, Don Alder, and Tommy Emmanuel. I think you’re going to like him. Enjoy!

I’m pairing Masa with my favorite class of white wine, namely a Sauvignon Blanc. The Michel Redde 2007 Sancerre is a clean, crisp bit of ambrosia with a bouquet full of Granny Smith apples and citrus and flavors of more apples, grapefruit, and lemon finishing with a tangy, balanced acidity. It’s an elegant wine for these days of Indian summer and the groove of Masa Sumide. Enjoy!
