Though you can add all kinds of fancy effects to achieve your desired sound, remember that genuine, straight-ahead jazz doesn't really require them. Akin to Harlem of the 1930's – in spirit, if not in scope – Deep Deuce spawned such legendary figures as jazz guitarist Charlie Christian, “blues shouter” Jimmy Rushing, and internationally acclaimed writer, Ralph Ellison. Was it Charlie Christian who first inspired you to seriously study the guitar? Additionally, a traveling photographic exhibit, Oklahoma: All That Southwest Jazz, sponsored by the Oklahoma Arts Council, is available to groups for a small fee through the Oklahoma Museums Association.
