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.

Clark Terry/Bob Brookmeyer Quintet - Tonight


Horn greats Clark Terry (trumpet) and Bob Brookmeyer (trombone) made three LPs with their quintet for the Mainstream label between 1964 and 1966, the first of which was Tonight. This was reissued in 1971 as Clark Terry-Bobby [!!!] Brookmeyer Quintet as pictured below.


From the original album, the tracks Blindman, Blindman and Straight No Chaser were paired on a 45. Both selections were short so neither was edited (in other words, faded after about three minutes as was common for jazz 45s) for the single release. Listen to and download Blindman, Blindman from the link below. The MP3 is taken from the 45.

Blindman, Blindman

All three Terry/Brookmeyer quintet albums were combined on a double-CD release in 2005 on Spain's Lone Hill Jazz label. Complete Studio Recordings is still available.


As well, all of the quintet's studio recordings are available as downloads from the usual sources.

Here's a video (no date or source given) of the Clark Terry-Bob Brookmeyer Quintet performing Straight, No Chaser, the slip side of the Blindman 45.
