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.
1. Guitars & All That Jazz: Five hours of the best in jazz, guitars and other instrumental gems. New songs are added weekly.
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.

Sonny Stitt - Soul Girl (2nd post)


This is the second go-round on the blog for this 1973 Sonny Stitt LP that mixed soul-tinged numbers with straight ahead jazz tunes. For more on Soul Girl read the earlier blog entry.

Jeep Blues is one of the straight ahead selections, with the MP3 taken from a cassette version of the album. Listen and/or download from the links below.

Here's Sonny Stitt from his 1956 Verve LP New York Jazz with a masterful interpretation of Body and Soul.
