Jazz Times calls Spencer Barefield "the best guitarist ignored by the U.S. jazz industry." That may be true. But Barefield’s thoroughly unique sound is perhaps too challenging for today's narrow minded jazz biz. A pity… Barefield's fusion of classical guitar stylings with Afro-jazz instrumentation effortlessly morphs Segovia with modern jazz. Barefield gigs internationally, but he calls Motown home -- so Detroiter's can frequently catch him around town.
