Melvin Sparks: A Man and His Guitar

I had the great pleasure of meeting Melvin Sparks and I can attest to his dedication to his music. Growing up I remember hearing tales of traveling musicians living gig to gig and doing it for nothing more than the sheer thrill of getting on a stage and rocking the crowd. Close your eyes and you can almost see a dimly lit room with cigarette smoke dancing in the air. No Mr. Sparks ain't your contemporary urban musician, more concerned about his/her latest music video. Nope, Melvin Sparks paid his dues playing along the likes of Little Richard and countless other legends in jazz & blues. If he isn't busy playing a gig, Melvin is a regular guy who enjoys the valuable things in life: family, music, and football. So if you got a minute or two and want to hear some great acid jazz check out Melvin at his website and if he's coming to a town near you don't miss it, you'll be sorry if you do.

His albums available for purchase (sound clips available)
