The Red Guitar, a jazz libretto, words and music by Bruce Forman... a one-man perspective into the life of a musician and an exploration of the creative process.

Imagine receiving an invitation to a gala featuring John Coltrane, Sigmund Freud, and Faust. Bruce Forman’s “The Red Guitar” is all that and more. It draws on Forman’s decades of experience as a formidable jazz guitarist and his considerable skill as a storyteller and teacher, producing a work that is greater than the sum of its dazzling parts.

A story in and about jazz, The Red Guitar showcases Bruce Forman’s genre—breaking inventiveness and his ability to improvise and create within a classical form. Enlisting the full power of the jazz idiom and integrating it with seasoned and provocative story-telling, he confronts the dilemma of artistic obsession face-to-face—by creating a work of art that simultaneously explores and demonstrates the hold that music has over its most ardent followers, the hold that poses itself as a life-or-death, must-be-solved-question to Forman and his ilk: “The Red Guitar. Do you play it…or does it play you?

See where you stand. See and hear The Red Guitar.

Bruce Forman continues in-residence at USC's Thornton School of Music's Studio/Jazz Guitar Dept. "In having replaced Joe Diorio, I knew I had huge shoes to fill. It is indeed humbling, and after more than eleven years I look forward to more work with the talented students and to being a member of such an esteemed faculty," says Bruce.


  Mix swingin' grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals, acoustic western sensibilities and tons of fun and you have only begun to describe the band Cow Bop.
