Melvin confides with “Master-Jam”: “Early in my career, 1983 – 2000 I recorded 6 CD’s for Evidence Records – Blues & Jazz.
I have toured in Europe, South America, Canada and parts of the USA opening for some well-known performers.
The past 2 years my creative focus has been on composing, producing and recording my own music. I released a double jazz CD, Beyond the Burning Guitar in 2010, Sweet Taste of Guitar in 2011, and recently completed a new CD to be released in early 2013.
In addition to composing and performing, I have a natural aptitude for electronics – I build and modify guitars, amplifiers, pedals, and tuners; I must say I have come up with some unique gadgets that I hope to market one day.”
