I’ve just released a new album of jazz guitar standards!
Eight of the tracks are solo chord melody arrangements. The final two tracks have bass and drum accompaniment for a change of pace.
On my first jazz guitar album I went overboard on virtuoso arrangements. I used every idea and trick I could think of to play! On this new album I tried to be more concise and keep to a straight forward rendition of the tune.
However, the song selection was the same as last time. I picked ten timeless standards from the Great American Songbook, Tin Pan Alley, Broadway stage & film musical.
Cheek To Cheek (Berlin)
After You’ve Gone (Creamer, Layton)
I’m Beginning To See The Light (Ellington)
She’s Funny That Way (Whiting, Moret)
Over The Rainbow (Arlen, Harbur)
Satin Doll (Ellington)
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Martin, Blane)
Love Is Here To Stay (Gershwin)
They Can’t Take That Away From Me (Gershwin)
I hope you enjoy the tunes!
