  3. Blue Train by John Coltrane ·
    gotta love Coltrane-this is not as manic as Giant Steps, or as "new" sounding as the late stuff....but it!

    Very Cool.

  5. Bright Size Life by Pat Metheny ·
    No standards or cliches here. A very digestible early Metheny work. Incidentally, a lot of the tunes here can be found in illegal real book 1, some under different titles.

  6. Junior High by Junior Brown ·
    Although I hate to admit it, I like SOME country (and yes, I did at one time play in a country band. or too)....Junior Brown rocks, man. Check out the tongue-in-cheek stereotypical look, the Hendrix influence, and that guit-steel thing. coolne...(more)

  9. Chord Chemistry by Ted Greene ·
    every chord you could possibly ever want. not in a real useful form, though.

  10. Modern Method for Guitar, Vol. 1 by William Leavitt ·
    an excellent place to go after Mel Bay or Alfred 1. dry as the desert, though.

  11. The Advancing Guitarist by Mick Goodrick ·
    The only problem I have with the book is that it is sometimes a bit too Zen and abstract..although I would recommend everyone buy it and study from it.

  12. Question and Answer by Pat Metheny ·
    The problem that I have with Pat Metheny is that he often sends me into note overload...too many notes, too many ideas. Often, after hearing a Metheny tune, I would not be able to repeat to you any of the thousand ideas he tossed off in his sol...(more)

  13. Paul Gilbert -- The Official Home Page ·
    A good way to waste a few minutes-not really a whole lot of information, but funny and cute....

  14. Guit With It by Junior Brown ·
    Everytime I buy this album, somebody "borrows" it and I never see it again....a very cool album...

  15. Sleight of Hand by Jimmy Bruno ·
    A kickin' little trio-Jimy plays so much guitar you never wish there was a horn player or pianist. Check out tracks 3 and 7.

  16. Alone Together by Jim Hall & Ron Carter ·
    Here are 2 masters kicking it old school...or something like that. The recording quality isn't quite perfect (a bit soft at times), but the playing is awesome.

  17. This is Jazz #9 by George Benson ·
    You may not know it, but before he forayed into crooning "This Masquerade" and light-weight stuff like "Breezin'". George <b>PLAYED HIS BUTT OFF</b>. For Proof, check out "The Cooker", "Willow Weep for Me", and several others. Kind of like a le...(more)

  18. Bing, Bing, Bing by Charlie Hunter ·
    I dig this album....Charlie plays this 8 string custom thing....3 bass strings, and 5 guitar strings. THe guitar strings go through some kind of effects and sound like an organ, so the band sounds like an organ trio. <br> <br> The band grooves ...(more)

  20. Charlie Parker Omnibook ·
    This is a collection of "heads" (melodies), solos, and chord changes to many Charlie Parker songs. <br> <b> if you are an aspiring jazzer, get this book </b> <br>There is a ton of useful ideas from a master musician. It would be nice to have ...(more)
