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.

Moments in Love: Just Guitar

This uncredited guitar instrumental CD is from The Netherlands. No date is specified on the release from the Ray's Music label, but it probably is from the late 1990s.

Moments in Love: Just Guitar is a slimmed down version (14 tracks) of a similarly titled album, Romancing the Hits 1: Just Guitar, which was first issued as double-LP vinyl set on the PMF label in 1990. It contained 19 selections and was later released on CD under the same title, but I'm not sure whether it came before or after the Moments in Love version.

In any case, neither CD is available. Here's a track that's included on both versions of the album.

Baker Street

All 19 tracks are available on iTunes (and probably elsewhere) under the original title Romancing the Hits, Vol. 1 and credited to the fictitious group The True Romantics. If you're a fan of pop guitar instrumentals you could do a lot worse.
