Adam Rafferty

Adam Rafferty's guitar style is deeply rooted in the bebop tradition, reflecting years of study with Mike Longo, Dizzy Gillespie's longtime pianist. He is also steeped in the organ trio style of players such as Wes Montgomery, George Benson, and Pat Martino, in which rhythmic feel and bluesy finesse count every bit as much as technique and theoretical knowledge. After getting his start with rock and funk bands, Rafferty worked toward a B.F.A. at the State University of New York in Purchase, studying classical guitar. However, his private studies with Longo pushed him deeper into the jazz world. In 1991, he lined up two Harlem gigs, one in the organ trio of Jimmy "Preacher" Robbins, the other in the Tippy Larkin Quintet. He also racked up experience working with Lou Donaldson, Frank Wess, Benny Golson, the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, and the Mike Longo Big Band. Rafferty performs with his own trio throughout the United States and Europe. His debut CD, First Impressions, featured the Mike Longo Trio and was released on Longo's Consolidated Artists label in 1993. The follow-up, Blood, Sweat & Bebop, appeared in 1998 and Kush appeared three years later. ~ David R. Adler, Rovi

The bio is spot on as far as it goes. There is more to the story... http://www.a d a m r a f f e r t y . c o m / a b o u t /
This bio seems to be about somebody entirely different, because this music is not bebop or jazz or big band at all. I think somebody goofed up because there must be two Adam Raffertys out there.
He's the top!
