30 Jazz Guitar Masters

30 Jazz Guitar Masters

Playing tracks by

Al Casey, Barney Kessel, Bill DeArango, Billy Bauer, Bucky Pizzarelli and more.

Chart positions

This show was 30th in the global jazz chart.

One of the things one couldn't help but notice when examining my collection is that I have a whole mess of Jazz guitar; I mean seriously obsessive numbers of artists and recordings. These 30 guitar voices are my personal choices over the 2 days that I put the mix together - I have no doubt at all that if I did this again tomorrow, there would be a fair number of changes. The problem is, what do you cut?

The picture is a priceless early photo of the great George Barnes, a gentleman I had the great pleasure to see more than once and even meet in San Francisco at Bimbo's. He was as personal and unique a guitar voice as any we have ever known.

This should have reached #1 in the jazz chart! For what it's worth Kingcake is #1 in my book. Cheers, my friend!
