Over 75 artists deliver a style-spanning aural history of jazz guitar on this 4-CD collection. The set begins with ragtime banjo virtuoso Vess Ossman’s St. Louis Tickle and culminates with Mike Stern’s searing lead on Miles Davis’ Fat Time.
In between a “Who’s Who” of jazz guitar greats step into the spotlight and do their thing — from swing to be-bop and funk to avant-garde. The cherry on top of this collection is a hardback book with an introduction by acclaimed jazz guitarist John Scofield, bios for every artist, historical guitar ads, and photos of classic axes and amps.
