Adam Rogers

Adam Rogers

Every jazz generation or decade has its extraordinary talents. Some create or typify movements in the genre like swing (Chick Webb, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington) or modern jazz (Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker Thelonious Monk) or free jazz (John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy).

Others become trendsetters (Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Charles Mingus) or the leading voices of their respective instruments (Sonny Rollins, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin).

Leading a crack outfit into Filene Hall on the Skidmore College campus, electric-guitar virtuoso Adam Rogers‘ fluid guitar lines ran the gamut of dynamic twists and turns. From gentle melodic interludes to lightning-fast arpeggios, Rogers effortlessly tore through a dozen or so selections mostly taken from his three solo outings, including his latest, “Sight.”
