Joe Pass - For Django

Alongside Tal Farlow and Wes Montgomery — Joe Pass is the most important jazz guitarist of the second half of the 20th century ! Known primarily for his solo guitar work — this album should be a revelation to those not familiar with his bebop chops — and his efortless single-line playing — which bears some similarity to Mr. Farlow. Pass plays the music of the Django cannon — without imitating Django (a mistake quite a few guitarists have made !) but embracing a new style within the same framework. For Django is also a song that deserves more attention — a possible jazz classic I'm surprised more artists don't play it — it has almost as many possibilities as John Lewis's 'Django'! Anyway, I believe this album to be a landmark in jazz guitar — listen for yourself.
