Legends of Jazz Guitar Volume One DVD Since first meeting in the 1920's, neither jazz nor the guitar have ever been the same. This swinging celebration of the union presents four legends of jazz guitar: Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Barney Kessel, and Herb Ellis. "Of all the ways to improvise," say Kessel, "the most stimulating and demanding is jazz". The four artists here demonstrate stunning command of the fingerboard alongside inspired explorations of standards, blues and ballads. Explosive cascades of notes as well as languid pools of music pour from these maestro's imaginations and fingers. "The object for me," said Joe Pass, "is to play music, to communicate, not to show hard things or fast things." While guitarists will note plenty that's hard and fast in this video/DVD, somehow these masters make even the impossible appear effortless. "That's class." The booklet for the DVD is not included, but can be accessed and downloaded from guitarvideos.com. Running time: 85 minutes. 13009DVD   $24.95

Legends of Jazz Guitar Volume Two DVD Virtuosity tempered by taste and informed by imagination is a constant force in this collection of brilliant jazz guitar performances. "The thing is to make music," Kenny Burrell once observed, "no matter what the tempo. That, to me, is the most demanding part of anything. It's not the physical or the technical part. It's just the idea of making it musical". The high-wire act of balancing virtuosity and musicality meets it match in the remarkable artists seen in the second volume of Legends of Jazz Guitar, featuring Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass, Barney Kessel, Charlie Byrd, and Grant Green. An 18-page booklet featuring biographical material, rare photographs, and details on the tunes performed on this DVD can be downloaded from guitarvideos.com. 13033DVD   $24.95

Legends of Jazz Guitar Volume Three DVD The guitar's odyssey in jazz is presented afresh in Vestapol's third compilation of prime performances from six of the idiom's movers and shakers. These men are among the most exemplary band members to choose the guitar as their means of expression. The initial inspiration for most of them was Charlie Christian, who blazed trails jazz guitarists still tread a half century later. Christian swung in the direction of bop, and his disciples (foremost among whom are seen here) boldly carried the guitar into that next phase of jazz. Aside from their fervor for the potential of the guitar in the evolution of jazz, many of these artists have similar backgrounds: Southern or Southwestern, and of roughly the same generation. But their individuality is abundantly clear in performances ranging from meditative ballads to speed-of-sound boppers. Underlying it all is an exhilarating sense of triumph over that apparent oxymoron, jazz guitar. Having proven that the guitar is indeed a first rate medium for jazz expression, these artists confidently address other contradictions, ones involving evolution within a well-grounded tradition. They're serious about their business, but you can see them having fun with it, too. 63 minute video. A 22-page booklet featuring biographical material, rare photographs, and details on the tunes performed on this DVD can be downloaded from guitarvideos.com. 13043DVD   $24.95

World of Fingerstyle Jazz Guitar DVD The evolution of jazz guitar continues as evidenced in this video featuring the talents of Martin Taylor, Tommy Crook, Jim Nichols, Duck Baker, and Woody Mann. Each player has developed a distinctly different approach to interpreting and writing jazz for solo guitar by listening intently to numerous other musicians and composers- pianists, horn players, bassists, and singers as well as guitarists in jazz, blues, and other styles. What distinguishes them from more traditional jazz guitarists is their ability to simultaneously play (or imply) all elements of music rhythm, harmony, bass, and melody- without accompaniment. 13064DVD   $24.95

Great Guitars of Jazz DVD Herb Ellis, the late Tal Farlow, and Charlie Byrd exemplify the breadth of American jazz. These elder statesmen of the guitar shared well over a century of combined knowledge and experience with styles covering a vast spectrum of the music, from straight-ahead swing and be-bop to bossa nova and beyond. The thread that bound these radically different players was their debt to Charlie Christian, the first electric jazz guitarist and the common inspiration for their lifelong dedication to musical excellence. Billed as the Great Guitars, a performance by this remarkable group offered a crash course in the history of jazz guitar. Selection include: Seven Come Eleven; Angel Eyes; and many more. 13075DVD   $24.95
