Try and Stop Me

Try And Stop Me is a 2004 album by guitarist Leo Kottke. It contains some of Kottke's first forays into improvisation. All songs are unaccompanied guitar solos with the exception of "Banks of Marble" in which Kottke is supported by the band Los Lobos.

Kottke plays a new arrangement of Carla Bley's "Jesus Maria" here. It would be his third recorded version of the song. Besides the version on That's What, he contributed another recording of the song to a promotional album titled Sounds of Wood and Steel (1997) released by Taylor Guitars and Windham Hill.
