  2. Yesterday after lunch I sat down in a sunny room to listen to this SACD, enjoyed the opening brass and the solo violin response - and re-entered consciousness with the loud final section. I usually last longer than that! cheers mick

    Jazz: Currently Spinning

    Two of the finest early guitarists - I dug out my original vinyl copy (purchased in 1963!). Carl Kress has a magic way with chords, and George Barnes was the first person to record an amplified (non- steel) guitar, before Charlie Christian even - he went on to be a session muso for a bunch of Bobbies (Darin, Dylan etc), as well as a whole lot of other 50's and 60's pop/rock stars - As one reviewer said, you don't know it, but you've heard him hundreds of times if you listened to radio in the 50s or 60s.
