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.

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.

Enoch Light & the Light Brigade - Eglantine (45 single)


The "A" side of this 1971 single by Enoch Light and the Light Brigade, a version of Paul Simon's Cecilia, was spotlighted in an earlier post.

The flip side of the 45, Eglantine, is taken from the score of the Disney family movie musical Bedknobs and Broomsticks. It's in a similar vein to the more highly regarded Mary Poppins.


Enoch Light's Dixieland-style version of Eglantine (but not Cecilia) was included on his 1972 album Movie Hits.


Since Eglantine has not made it into the digital domain your best bet is to use the links below to listen to and/or download the song.

Here's how Eglantine, the first name of the character played by Angela Lansbury, was heard in Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
