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.

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.

The Buckaroos - Chicken Pickin'

A big part of what made Buck Owens such an exciting country act was his band, The Buckaroos. Although Owens took some guitar solos himself (and he was a fine picker), most of the guitar picking came from the fingers of Don Rich.

A fine example of his fret work is the 1967 recording of Chicken Pickin', issued as a single and included on the album The Buckaroos Strike Again.

Below is a lick to Chicken Pickin', with the music taken off the 45 single.

The flip side of the single was Apple Jack, which was posted previously. That post also had more information on the album from which it was taken and on The Buckaroos.

Chicken Pickin' is available on several CD compilations, including two mentioned in the previous post. The track can also be downloaded.

From YouTube, here's a short live clip from TV of Don Rich and the Buckaroos playing Chaparral.
