Steve Strawitz is a dual threat - guitar and violin are his instruments of choice.
With a scary fast set of hands and a deep well to draw on, we're not surprised to hear him pull out anything from Pat Metheney to Charlie Parker licks on that guitar.
He showed up at his first rehearsal with the violin and said "do you mind if I try a few tunes?" We all thought, sure, go ahead - not realizing he was the Eddie Jobson of jazz violin. You have to hear him play songs on the instrument to appreciate just how gorgeous violin can sound in a jazz setting.
