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.

Kai Winding - Esto es Felicidad (Let's Do It) (track)

Esto es Felicidad (Let's Do It) by trombonist Kai Winding (1922-1983) is taken from a 1962 MGM LP, Anatomy of Dancing: The Latin Mood. Anatomy of Dancing was sold as a three-album set, although the LPs also appeared to have been marketed individually.

Winding contributed two tracks to The Latin Mood, with the rest by Charles Foxx and his orchestra. Esto es Felicidad first appeared on the trombonist's 1961 Verve LP Kai Ole. Verve was then owned by MGM.

Winding was very much in a pop-jazz mode on many of his Verve recordings and had a sizeable hit with More, the theme from the film Mondo Cane.

Here's that tune from The Latin Mood.

None of the contents of Kai Ole or Anatomy of Dancing: The Latin Mood appear to have made the transition to a digital format, so grab the sample track.
