Claude Bourbon grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained. He has performed and studied all over the world and has crafted an unbelievable fusion of classical and jazz, with ethereal eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements with strains of western folk. Do you know what Medieval guitar sounds like? I didn't either 'til I hooked up with Claude! This is some cool stuff, and he's French and everything! (Dolores, CO). Never heard anyone get that much beautiful sound out of a J-4 (Bob, Tucson, AZ).
