Herb Ellis, the late Tal Farlow and Charlie Byrd exemplify the breadth of American Jazz. These elder statesmen of the guitar shared well over a century of combined knowledge and experience with styles covering a vast spectrum of the music, from straight-ahead swing and be-bop to bossa nova and beyond. The thread that bound ehse radically different players was their debt to Charlie Christian, the first electric jazz guitarist and the common inspiration for their lifelong dedication to musical excellence. Billed as the Great Gutiars, a performance by this remarkable group offered a crash course in the history of jazz guitar. Selections include: Seven Come Eleven, Angel Eyes, Jumpin' at the Woodside; Blues Skies and more. 80 minute-video
