I have found some great music from recommendations on this sight : Rory Gallager, Freddie King, others.

I have three jazz guitar CD's:

Grant Green Green Street
Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery
Kenny Burrell Midnight Blue

I like these but can anyone recommend anything more recent? I don't like easy listening stuff, I like Garcia-like jams.

If you like that era and that sound, have you heard of Tal Farlow? One of the best from the 40's - 50's era.

Not sure I can think of more recent stuff that isn't "jazz-light".

Anthony Wilson might be worth a look. He's played behind Diana Krall, but his solo work has a standard jazz feel.

You really need to fill out your Wes Montgomery catelog more so than Incredible Jazz Guitar. I especially like Wes' "pop" recordings. Although they are looked down upon by jazz snobs, I love them. Stanley Jordan's first record. Tuck and Patty's first record. And for real recently anything by Norman Brown especially After The Storm. I suppose Norman would be classified as smooth Jazz but he is incredible at least IMO.

Jimmy Raney, if there's anything on CD.
He played on a few records with Stan Getz and was voted as top guitarist in Downbeat magazine a couple times in the early mid 50's.

pick up pat metheny's 'bright size life' with jaco pastorius and bob moses, not really 'standard' jazz more ethereal but the playing and compositions are wonderful.

Pat has too much synth for me. I quit listening to the Greatful Dead after they added Brent. Never liked synthesizers and probably never will.

If you like "lots of fast notes" guitar playing, check out "Ask The Ages" by Sonny Sharrock. Has Elvin Jones on drums, Charnett Moffett on bass, Pharoah Sanders on sax. Some BAD ASS chops on that recording. Very guitar dominated.

Also highly recommended is The John Scofield Trio live recording called "EnRoute"; very nice stuff.

"Metal Fatigue" by Alan Holdsworth is pretty cool. A bit on the fusion-y side. Great guitar playing on it.

If you like Jimmy Herring's playing at all, check out Scott Henderson too. Jimmy studied under Scott Henderson at GIT, and copped a lot of stuff from him. "Dr. Hee" is a real good Scott Henderson record (which I still need to pick up on CD).

You ever listened to any John McLaughlin? Check out some of John's playuing in Mahavishnu Orchestra....can't go wrong with "Inner Mounting Flame" or "Birds of Fire." McLaughlin also did some cool acoustic world music type of stuff in the early 1990s with Trilok Gurtu on drums/percussion. That was some cool stuff too.

I'd also suggest delving back and checking out Django Rheinhardt. Start with some of the recordings with the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, featuring Django and Stephane Grapelli on violin. That stuff smokes!

Check out allmusic.com and read up on some of these artists mentioned on this thread, and be sure to check out the Discography sections of each artist. The recommendations/reviews at allmusic.com are usually spot-on.

My favorite jazz guitarist is Lenny Breau. Check out "Live At Bourbon Street". It's a 2 cd live show of just Lenny & a great bass player (Dave Young). Google "Guitarchives" & go to their website. It's a company started by Randy Bachman (of BTO fame) devoted to Lenny's music.

Also, Emily Remler was brilliant. Check out her 2 Retrospective cd's on Concord Records. I especially like Vol. 1 (Standards).

Pat Metheny's trio albums are great and mostly free of synths. "Bright Size Life", as mentioned earlier. Plus "Question And Answer" with Dave Holland & the great Roy Haynes. Also, "Rejoicing" with another great drummer, Billy Higgins and "Trio 99/00".

Pat Martino's newest cd "remember" is a tribute to Wes. Highly recommended.

Jimmy Bruno is another amazing player. Get "Sleight of Hand" , "Like That", or "Live At Birdland" (with Bobby Watson on alto sax). All are on Concord and are truly exceptional.

Oh yeah, if you like latin/flamenco type of stuff, check out "Friday Night In San Francisco." It's a live album with Al Dimeola, John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia playing in trio and duo performances. Really great playing on it.

"Friday Night In San Francisco" is astonishing. WHOA!!!


If you like jazz fusion but find some of it a bit wimpy, and you want to hear something along the lines of Jeff BEck's 1970s instrumental albums (which are must-haves, by the way: "Wired" is essential), check out Billy Cobham's "Spectrum." It is jammy, funky, fantastic. Some of my favorite guitar work courtesy of Tommy Bolin.

Actually, have you heard Jazz Is Dead? You get a great jazz fusion line-up - Cobham on drums initially, Alphonso Johnson on bass, the great Jimmy Herring on guitar, T Lavitz from the Dregs on keys - and they do lengthy all-instrumental jams of Dead songs!! To bring it home to this site, Derek Trucks guests on one of their discs! While they sound better live, the studio recordings are fun too.

I'd like to second, third and fourth Jim's post!!!! Great Sky River is my favorite Jazz Is Dead CD some of Jimmy Herring's best recorded playing IMO. Truely incredible guitar playing.

Re: "Bright Size Life"--It's from 1976, and it's just guitar, bass and drums. The "cheesy synth" quotient is ZERO! I love this CD--mainly for Jaco's playing (I'm a bass player), but that Pat guy isn't too shabby on guitar, either.

Ditto the old Pat ECM stuff. 80/81 is a double album with some great horn playing. Joshua Redman's (Dewey's son) first record, Wish, is solid. Pat, Chris McBride and Billy Higgins did the tour, I believe that they were on the record as well.

Pat Martino's Think Tank is well done.

Y'all are way outta my league...I would've said Benson's "Breezin."

But I will definitely be looking up some of these at the library and checking them out. Think I've seen Pat Matheny in the stacks. Thanks for the list, y'all!
