Return Of The Wildest Guitar


Mickey Baker was one of the most versatile and technically proficient players of the 1950s New York studio scene where he made his initial impact. He is best known though for his pop/R&B outings as one half of the duo, Mickey & Sylvia whose recordings can be found on the Jasmine collection "Love Is Strange" (JASMCD3093). Here Jasmine focuses on a selection of Mickey's solo recordings along with a handful of his prominent session work all recorded between 1952 and 1959. These selections truly display the breadth of Baker's talent as he plays several different styles with equal brilliance. When listening to this collection of his outstanding guitar playing there is no question of Mickey Baker's importance in the development of rock and roll and in particular rock and roll guitar. Throughout this time he also continued to teach guitar and wrote the first of several tuition books which became best sellers and have remained in print for over 50 years. Includes fully detailed liner notes.
