Jazz Guitar Greats
Jazz Club Guitar

I was trolling through CDNow one night and came across these jazz guitar compilation CDs: Jazz Guitar Greats and Jazz Club - Guitar. When I checked their listing of tracks and artists, I was intrigued. When I heard the sound clips I was impressed. When I saw the price I was convinced! On these two CDs you can hear Kenny Burrell, Les Paul, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Bucky Pizzarelli, Charlie Byrd, Barney Kessel, Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, Grant Green, Chuck Wayne, Billy Bauer, Jimmy Raney, Tal Farlow, Baden Powell, John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, Philip Catherine and Jim Hall.

On top of all that, the two CDs together come up to about SIXTEEN BUCKS! Trust me, you can't go wrong on this one. For newcomers to jazz guitar, these are excellent introductory samplers. For the oldsters, these are fun recordings and great additions to your collection. For teachers, well... that should be obvious. Check out the track listings below.
