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.
