Thanks for the post - Joe is a legend. Unfortunately, he suffered a stroke approximately 5 years ago and no longer teaches at USC. His position is now filled by Bruce Forman, another excellent guitarist.

That's a terrible shame, I know a guitarist Joe Giglio who is in contact with him on a regular basis and he is getting better all the time.
He has some wild concepts (lost on most guitarists I know!) and would heartily recommend his books "Intervallic Designs" & "Jazz Structures For The New Millennium," esp to sax and piano players
