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.

Listen to the Music
There are now two music streams. Click the appropriate player to the right.

2. Tiki Shores: Music to sweep you away to a tropical isle, a South American dance floor or a bossa nova on the beach at Rio. About 4.5 hours of classic exotica music, Latin rhythms and bossa nova.

Les Adams & His Fabulous Hawaiians - Adventures in Paradise



How about some Hawaiian music recorded in Australia? A bit strange perhaps, but Les Adams and His Fabulous Hawaiians recorded a couple of albums in the 1960s, including the simply-titled Hawaii, which came out in 1965. Adams was the lead steel guitar player of the nine-member group, whose take on Hawaiian music is pretty authentic, as you'll hear on Adventures in Paradise.

None of the recordings of Les Adams and His Fabulous Hawaiians appear to have made the transition to digital formats, although you can often find copies of the Hawaii LP for sale online.
