va – pioneers of the jazz guitar (yazoo lp 1977) album

Curious to hear what the absolute roots of jazz guitar are? You’ve come to the right place. This compilation on the ever-excellent Yazoo imprint collects 14 hard to find 78rpm recordings by unsung heroes like Eddie Lang, Nick Lucas, John Cali and Carl Kress. Expect some crackle and hiss, and lots of off-the-wall virtuoso guitar swing.
