Description

p>Jazz Guitar Text 18 Original Albums

The invention of the electric guitar in the 1930s made it possible for the instrument to have a solo-spot in any band, as it thus could compete with the volume of the wind instruments and the drums. Charlie Christian (1916-1942) was the young genius from Oklahoma City who, starting in 1939, played as a soloist in the sextet of the famous swing-clarinetist Benny Goodman, his technique inspired by the phrasing and single-note-playing of the tenor saxophonists. At the same time, he jammed with the pioneers of the upcoming Bebop-movement - Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and Kenny Clarke - at Harlem's After Hour Jazzclubs. Unfortunately, because of his untimely death, only a few recordings of his are preserved, which open this documentation on the modern jazz guitar.
T-Bone Walker was another key figure of the early electric guitar, who influenced almost every major guitarist on the modern Blues-scene, such as B.B. King and all Blues-oriented jazz guitarists. Al Casey and Tiny Grimes are prime examples for this ? on their respective sessions they are accompanied by the great tenor saxophonist Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Herb Ellis will be forever remembered as the guitarist in the Oscar Peterson trio. With Roy Eldridge and Stan Getz he proves that he could shine without a piano. The guitarists Tal Farlow, Sal Salvador and Jim Hall were "cooler". However, the latter was "a man for all occasions": fantastic examples can be found here in the interplay with Jimmy Giuffre, Paul Desmond and Bob Brookmeyer.
The same can be said of Kenny Burrell, who, like Hall and Barry Galbraith, was one of the best studio guitarists in New York during the 1960s. On the West Coast, Barney Kessel was among the "first call"-instrumentalists. His album "To Swing or not to Swing" is a great example of the many good recordings of and with him. In Europe there were a number of musicians following in the footsteps of Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt, among them the wonderful René Thomas. An exciting encounter between the motherland of jazz and the old continent can be witnessed on "Afternoon in Paris" with John Lewis, the pianist of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and a young Sacha Distel on the guitar, who later became an international star as a singer. A guitarist who, like Charlie Christian, once again re-defined the instrument was Wes Montgomery, who started out with his brothers, Monk and Buddy, in Indianapolis, and who had great success in the jazz world on the Riverside label in New York. Looking back on these years of masterpieces from 1939 to 1962, the stylistic and highly musical variety of these still electrifying guitar heroes is almost incomprehensible.
