Awards and nominations Producers. Howard Alden, Frank Vignola, — I see Martin Taylor is mentioned in a comment but he sure needs to be on any list of great jazz guitarists. Teddy Bunn in the Spirits of Rhythm was amazing.
He also played with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton and a number of other well known jazz bands. He settled for many years with Louis Jordan. He played single notes with his thumb similar to how Wes did it.
Not strictly a jazz guitar compilation, and a bit too heavy on the fusion. Same with one of my favorites, Holdsworth. Glad to see Wes well represented, to me THE benchmark of what a jazz guitarist should aspire to. Glad to see some other jazz greats listed, but Pat Martino and Lenny Breau were seriously under represented and far more important to jazz guitar than some who were listed more than once or the non genre players.
There were also some other comments that mentioned Chuck Wayne,among others.. There were also some comments by others that mentioned Chuck Wayne,Lenny Breau.. Do you have any idea what jazz is…no…thought so.
John — agree with you — if we eliminated jazz influenced rock players like Holdsworth from the list, we could include others who are more deserving, like Garland, Bruno, Breau. Kudos on the list.. I would have chose a lot of different records myself.. Lenny Breau was brilliant ,and Oscar Aleman from Brazil some of his time said he was better than Django who he had met and performed with.
From Australia the great jazz guitariat James Muller recorded the album Kaboom that should be part of this list for sure …. Not mentioned at all is one the most creative jazz guitarist ever. Little known by the general jazz guitar public, but highly respected by all the great jazz guitar players. Truly innovative and one of the most musical guitar players ever. His name is Mick Goodrick. Give him a listen.
He presently teaches at Breklee College of Music. Played with Gary Burton and many others. A mi me cuesta quedarme con uno solo de estos artistas..
That very nature means that sales are more important than musicianship and the importance of listening and learning. There are many others. Jobim could play guitar, flute and a few other things, but his instrument was the piano. In addition, he died insisting that Bossa Nova was inspired, not by jazz, but by Afro-Brazilian rhythms and French Impressionism.
Everyone always overlooks the great Baden Powell. He is a far more versatile and accomplished player than gilberto although i adore his work and his playing. Any number of his albums is more than worthy to be on this list. You need something of Joe Becks on here. Here Argentina there are others greats players like Luis Salinas, Valentino play fingerpicking like your hero Wes Motgomery and others onli for call two.
Varady may well be remembered someday as one of the great -someday! Does not belong on the list when far more important players — Stochelo Rosenberg, Jimmy Bruno etal. The list would need to make a distinction between performers and composers, as well.
If Intermodulation Evans — Hall , Undercurrent is even better. Whoever put it together has very limited and pervert knowledge of jazz guitar. Holdsworth not a jazz player? He represents the epitome of the spirit of what jazz music is really all about….. The only reason you would call him a rock player is because his guitar is distorted. Pro tip: listen to the actual pitches he produced over chord changes. Imagine that….
Coltrane of the guitar. Right, Holdsworth is a rock guitarist with tremendous chops. Not a jazz guitarist, but influenced by jazz. Please check the work of Australian Tommy Emmanuel. He and Martin Taylor are two of the very best contemporary fingerpickers around.
Nice list! Kenny Burrell really shone with Coltrane and also brought out the best in Trane on that album. Why are you making posts making it appear that the late Ornette Coleman AND Blue Note records have anuthing at all to do with your idiotic lists? Kurt Rosenwinkel should have more album on this list. In the 80 Everybody wanted too play like pat. Kurt Rosenwinkel also.
Kurt Needs more love! I feel George Barnes needs to be listed here. He was such an inventive guitarist and fabulous musician and he had one of the most recognizable sounds in jazz! He inspired everyone that ever heard him play! Jazz is beautiful, along with blues so truly American, but I will always prefer combos with a guitar player.
Charlie Christian Invented lead electric playing as we know it. Absolutely indispensable. Kenny Burrell Nobody mixed jazz and blues any better than Kenny Burrell, and his work has remained stellar until this day, where he has recorded live gigs at 85 years old and still blows minds.
He truly is an American music legend. The best overall guitarist of all time. Wes Montgomery Anybody who places any player above Montgomery as far as pure jazz playing goes is a fool. No jazz player was more influential, and nobody was as innovative and brilliant in octave picking and advanced chord comping.
There is a longer version on a four volume set that goes on well over 20 minutes, but even the 10 minutes here is pure magic as Young and Hendrix create a jam that somehow fuses jazz, blues, and rock like nobody ever did before or since. It is pure transcendence. Hendrix acolytes often muse whether the legend may have gone into a jazz direction, as he was at least talking to Miles Davis not long before his death.
Russell Malone Elegance abounds as this great player uses some of the most mellow tones ever to lull the listener into a beautiful place of melody and grace. Not too much in the fusion stuff — some of it got too proggy for my tastes. Not sure if he qualifies as a jazz player. I always get good listening suggestions. But the Incredible Jazz Guitar overall is his best. Good work and thanks.
