About this product
- DescriptionThe jazz guitar and its master players have had vast influence in a genre of uniquely provocative 20th century music. Written by some of the world's leading jazz authorities, this book spotlights remarkable musicians whose artistry have made the guitar fundamental to jazz. From 1930s electric pioneer Charlie Christian, to 1960s fusion visionary Larry Coryell and beyond, Masters of Jazz Guitar celebrates the achievements of players who changed the sound of jazz. It explores how early banjo players adapted their styles to the guitar; the originators of amplification in jazz; guitarists who bridged swing and bebop; hardboppers; the various fusion movements; the importance of n-jazz geniuses such as Jimi Hendrix; and the modern jazz guitar scene in the US and around the world.
- Author BiographyCharles Alexander contributed to Classic Guitars of the '50s and Classic Guitars of the '60s, and is the publisher of Jazzwise Publications and Jazzwise magazine. Also a jazz guitar teacher, he narrates the BBC radio series The Guitar in Jazz.
