Notes:

Cursory, because I’m only scraping the surface of each of the contributions these players have made.

Select number, because there are other Guitarists whom I could have chosen, these are just some personal favorites

Chosen the 1950/60’s period because I believe this was one of the pinnacle points when Jazz Guitarists reached to exceptional levels in terms of musicality, technique and inventiveness.

A Personal Viewpoint - in that I have selected the Guitarists and what aspects of their playing to highlight. I believe that every musician has some aspect of their playing which they are particularly good at and to this end I have highlighted that aspect in each of these players.

Musicians

  • Oscar Moor, George Van Eps, Barry Galbraith, Johnny Smith
  • Tal Farlow, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell
