John Pisano, a jazz guitarist who wrote some minor hits while a member of Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass in the '60s and later worked with jazz guitar great Joe Pass, loves his chosen instrument. "The guitar fascinates me," Pisano said. "There are so many directions you can go. There's always something to do, something to learn." If there's one thing Pisano cares about as much as picking up a guitar, it's listening to colleagues play it.

You might not have been able to hear a pin drop, but it was close.
