Joe Pass - Guitar Virtuoso (Live at the Kiel Opera House 1992

I admired Pat Martino as a guitarist Master...

But Joe Pass  rival him.., On par with him..

it takes Django Rheinhardt the master of all jazz guitarist to top these two geniuses in a trinity...

But  all trinity need a fourth point : Wes Montgomery ..

As a fifth i will add Grant Green ...

But there is many more other great guitarists... it is the one i know best and love the most..


@stuartk  you are welcome.

Here are few more live gigs that should not be overlooked

Milt Jackson quintet 'Thats the way it is' (with Ray Brown, Teddy Edwards and Monty Alexander

Johnny Griffin 'Studio Jazz Party' (live, in front of studio audience)

Byrd, Kessel, Ellis, live at Concord jazz festival

I have not post any Miles live concert, as there are so many great ones. This album contains couple of songs recorded live with line up that made Kind of Blue year later, so I guess is quite special, as I am not aware of any other such recordings

Miles '58

This live recording has not been issued (as far as I know) on album, but I would like that very much. Kenny Burrell and Grant Grant playing together (with B.Kessell)
