"Tommy Tedesco was billed as the most recorded guitarist in history and he certainly seemed to live up to his reputation with his thousands of sessions in almost every conceivable style of music." So began my original post on this album back in July 2012.
The claim may very well be true, although at this stage it's impossible to verify. It's unbelievable that little if any of this marvelous musician's solo work is available in a digital format. All of his jazz CDs are out of print, with only his last (Tedesco died in 1997), Fine-Fretted Friend, available at a reasonable price. Tedesco's one solo album that was available as a download, Hollywood Gypsy, has now been discontinued.
Carnival Time (1983), a sparkling three-guitar album also featuring Jim Bruno and Jon Kurnick, was recorded live at the Musicians' Institute in Los Angeles. Here's a sample track taken from a cassette version of the album.

For more details on Tommy Tedesco and this album read the previous post.
In 1965 Imperial Records released The Guitars of Tom Tedesco, a Latin-flavoured jazz album in which the guitarist is accompanied by pianist Pete Jolly's trio. Here's a sample.
