Welcome to Guitars & All That Jazz

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.

Studio Sound Orchestra - Souvenirs from Hawaii


We've already visited this album in a previous post, albeit under a different title, 20 Melodies from Paradise, and a different (and definitely more pleasing) cover. The tracks on both albums are the same, although in a different order.

In any case you can find more detailed information in the previous entry. If you're a fan of traditional Hawaiian music you could do worse than pick up this CD. It was most likely recorded in Europe rather than Hawaii (date unknown) but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Cheap copies under either title -- Souvenirs from Hawaii (1992) or 20 Melodies from Paradise (1989) -- are available almost everywhere. Thrift store bins are another likely source. In the meantime, another sample is available below.

Aloha Oe
