Welcome to Guitars & All That Jazz

Guitars & All That Jazz was a radio station that webcast via Live365 for 11 years, ending in June 2011. The playlist consisted of guitar instrumentals, jazz, big band, early rock 'n' roll, lounge music and classic easy listening.

I hope to share some of this music with you via this blog. Most of it will be taken from the original vinyl (LPs and 45s) , cassettes and the occasional commercially unavailable CD.

Here's hoping you'll find something to enjoy. Please note files are available only for a limited time.

I urge you to purchase the digital version of the albums featured, either on CD or via download, wherever possible.

Andre Previn - Give My Regards to Broadway

When pianist Andre Previn left the Contemporary label at the end of the 1950s, he moved to Columbia where one of his first projects was Give My Regards to Broadway. It's a trio effort with bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Frank Capp and they run through 10 standards from Broadway musicals, including Almost Like Being in Love from Brigadoon (1947). The MP3 is taken from a cassette copy of the album.

Almost Like Being in Love

Give My Regards to Broadway is widely available on CD on the Collectables label (recommended) and via digital downloads on the Hallmark label. Beware of possible quality issues with the downloads if you're a stickler for pristine sound: Hallmark albums are often dubbed from vinyl.

And here's the title song from Give My Regards to Broadway, with a nice retro touch of a spinning turntable, from YouTube.
