Meet Jonathan Stout, a Southern California-based jazz guitarist best known as a bandleader in the swing dance world.

Jonathan's story is unlike any we've ever heard: Here's someone who cites Kirk Hammett as an influence, along with Benny Goodman guitarist Allan Reuss. He's a player, a scholar of early jazz guitar, a drummer, and he can even get you out of a traffic ticket (yep, he's also a lawyer). 

During our chat, we talk about the unique music requirements of modern-day swing dances, we hear about Jonathan's favorite vintage guitars, and learn why he's so obsessed with Reuss. Plus a lot more... 
 
This is one of our favorite interviews to date and we think you'll love it.
