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.

Sonny Stitt - Night Crawler

One of the dozen or so albums that Sonny Stitt recorded during his time on the Prestige label was this boppish-sounding 1965 date that also featured organist Don Patterson and drummer Billy James.

Stitt, a disciple of Charlie Parker, contributed only two originals among the six songs on the album, one of which was Answering Service. The tune ran 4:40 on the LP but the MP3 below is a shortened version taken from a DJ 45. Click on the link to listen and download.

Answering Service

To hear the full version of Answering Service, buy the 2001 compilation CD Boss Men, jointly credited to Stitt and Patterson and which contains the complete Night Crawler LP. It's also available as a digital download.
