Few guitarists in the jazz idiom have reached the level of virtuosity that Joe Pass established and refined throughout his career. His playing in group settings was flawless, but his true genius was revealed as a solo guitarist who could simultaneously play all elements of a jazz or blues tune - melody, rhythm, chord harmonies, bass lines and rapid-fire improvised passages - all with an impeccable sense of taste and style that wowed critics and listeners around the world. This DVD offers excerpts from various performances from 1962-1982 that capture the essence, brilliant technique and enormous talent of Joe Pass. In a brief interview segment, Joe discusses his guitaristic roots and his thoughts on his music. Joe Pass has inspired legions of players, yet he remains unsurpassed as the most genial jazz guitarist of our time. Running time: 115 minutes.
