Here's a guitarist most of you have most likely never heard of. Heck, even over here he is not very well known. Nevertheless, Eef Albers is one of the most prominent musicians in the Netherlands. He has made 4 solo CDs, but is more notably active as a teacher at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague and as a guest musician.
I'd call him a fusion player. Most of his music is in that genre. In his work, Albers uses influences from the blues, rock and jazz, as well as classical music. He's not really a traditional jazz guitarist. I've only found a few clips on Youtube that show him in a straight ahead jazz setting. But man, when Eef starts boppin' out on his Strat, he's up there with the best. Check out his solo on "I'll Remember April", which was recorded at some jazz jam a few years ago.
And from the same concert with the Metropole concert in 1988 here's "On a Slow Boat to China."
