HOT GUITARS Vol. 1 Early Country Hillbilly & Jazz CD 554

BACM’s first volume of early jazz-influenced country guitar maestros includes the legendary Les Paul, Karl Farr and Leroy “Slim” Johnson (both of whom added their guitar magic to many of the great Sons Of The Pioneers recordings) – plus some amazing performances from guitar virtuoso Herb Kratoska. Also 8 tracks by Les Paul’s mentor and one time musical partner, multi-instrumentalist Joe Wolverton. The four Les Paul Trio tracks include Chet Atkins’ elder bother Jim Atkins on rhythm guitar/ vocals and future Nashville A-List session man Ernie Newton on bass. Stand out track, an upbeat jazzy I’ll Take You Home Kathleen by Joe Wolverton & His Boys. Superb Karl Farr guitar solos on the two 1938 Gene Autry tracks.
