An absolute must for jazz lovers and guitarists alike, this is the first book ever to be written which covers, in a definitive way, the guitar's role in jazz. The new fourth edition has been expanded to include bios of the leading jazz-rock fusion players. The main part of the book is devoted to over 250 detailed biographies of the major jazz guitarists since 1895. The collection of photographs of jazz guitarists is the finest and most complete put together under one cover. In addition, it includes a chapter listing every important jazz guitar recording ever made, and a final section, 'Sources Of Supply' that ensures that nearly every record, book and piece of music listed can be obtained by the reader. 8? x 11-3/4?.
