Joe Puma - It's a Blue World

Joe Puma may be a peripheral jazz guitarist, but he possesses world-class chops on this 1999 outing. A former replacement for Tal Farlow in Artie Shaw's Gramercy Five, Puma shows a strong chord melody style on the heads and flexible improvisation utilizing single string lines and block chording. With only Murray Wall on bass and Eddie Locke on drums, Puma negotiates his way through a set of jazz standards like "I'll Remember April," "Sweet Sue," and the title track with consummate ease and flair. If you love traditional jazz guitar with a strong sense of melody, this one's right up your alley.

Thank you for Joe Puma. I had a pretty bad LP rip of this that I got somewhere, so this is a great replacement.

Funny this post of "It's a blue world" -- from a "little known" guitarist like Joe Puma generates so many comments so quickly. I guess Joe is better known than the critics give him credit for. Nice addition for me. Thank you very much.

Dear Melanchthon, thank you for this CD. I would like to ask, do you have working links on two albums of Herbie Mann: 1956 – Goes Native and 1957 - Adam's Theme? Thank you for this amazing site.
