One of the coolest things about attending GIT was the opportunity to study w/ Allen Hinds.
One of the smoothest LEGATO players and SO tasteful in EVERYTHING he does. He's an oddity. He's got more chops than a PIG FARM, but is always playing for the SONG, not the solo.
Just a master..His new book Liquid Legato is a real treat to work out of (as are all the SOSFG legato books, btw)
