Howard Roberts - H.R. Is A Dirty Guitar Player - ELP 223: In the pantheon of under-the-radar American guitar heroes, Howard Roberts looms large. A remarkably versatile musician who was one of Los Angeles' most in-demand session players from the early 1950s through the 1970s, Roberts' career encompassed an incredible array of studio assignments.
Jimmy Bryant - The Fastest Guitar In The Country - LP 5407: Here at last is the album that christened Jimmy Bryant with the distinct moniker of "Fastest Guitar in the Country." Never before reissued, this collection of jazz-fueled country pickin' is the ultimate testament of Jimmy Bryant's gift to the guitar world.
Jimmy Raney - Visits Paris - MH-8031: Long a sought-after jazz classic, Visits Paris finds Jimmy Raney on a (very) brief break from touring France, taking the opportunity to cut an album with some local musicians and putting himself very much in the foreground after having been a sideman on previous projects.
Dick Garcia - Message From Garcia - MH-8078: Jazz guitar autodidact Dick Garcia struts his stuff while the likes of Bill Evans, Gene Quill, and John Drew try to keep up! The combination of Bird, Christian and his own personality meld here in Dick’s own swinging style, delivering repertoire so diverse it required three different backing bands!
Mundell Lowe - Blues For A Stripper - MH-8028: Beyond hip! From cool jazz to hard bop. Mundell Lowe's virtuosity knows virtually no bounds. His comprehensive and artistic musicality has placed him in among the top players in jazz. The music is often sensuous and sexy but at times as tough as a two-dollar steak. It's the real deal.
