  28. . Paul, Les [Waukesha] - Although "The Waukesha Wizard" is probably Wisconsin's most world-wide renowned guitar instrumentalist, I am not aware that he ever recorded a solo fingerstyle guitar instrumental album. I saw him at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City on 8-07-2006 and he did no playing without his flat pick. At 91 years old, he was simply amazing!
