Great Jazz Guitarists 1
Ivor Mairants (au)
From 1900 to the 1950s, the guitar played a fundamental role in shaping the harmonies and structure of jazz. This guide presents a detailed analysis of the playing styles and interpretative techniques of some of the leading jazz guitarists of their day: Les Paul, Eddie Durham, Lonnie Johnson, George Van Eps, Django Reinhardt, and Charlie Christian -- complete with transcriptions of some of their most important recordings. The book was compiled and written by Ivor Mairants, one of the most innovative and active jazz guitarists of the 20th cent., who selected and transcribed the music. A contemporary of Les Paul and Django Reinhardt, his personal anecdotes and insight make this a truly unique work. Includes unique transcriptions of classic solos.
