Jazz Guitar on YouTube

March 20, 2007

Youtube.com is, if perhaps not a bonanza of jazz guitar, then certainly the best internet resource to check out for vids of our heroes. There are a handful of Kessel vids, including a smashing rendition of Barney’s own “One Mint Julep“; there are even more Tal Farlow vids, mainly from the eighties and early 1990s; there is plenty of Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Jim Hall, and some Pat Martino, Ed Bickert, etc. There are lots of jazz manouche (if you haven’t seen the clip with the QHCF playing J’Attendrai, check it out now!). Some great guitarists that aren’t there: Jimmy Raney and Johnny Smith.

Update: Be sure to check out this great clip with Chris Flory and Duke Robillard. In particular, I enjoyed Chris’ bluesy playing on his L7 with FHC DeArmond PU.
