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.

Sonny Stitt & Bennie Green - Flame and Frost (45 single)

This record was distributed to DJs and jukeboxes in 1964 to promote My Main Man, an LP by saxophonist Sonny Stitt and trombonist Bennie Green. The album's title song was on the flip side of the single. Both tracks were shortened for the single release, as was usually the case at the time.

Rounding out the personnel on this album were Bobby Buster on organ, guitarist Joe Diorio and drummer Dorel Anderson. Here's the single version of Flame and Frost.

Flame and Frost

In 2005 My Main Man was combined on CD with Soul in the Night, a 1966 album Stitt made with fellow saxophonist Bunky Green (no relation to Bennie). The European label Gambit issued the disc under the title Stitt Goes Green and it's available directly from the company or via the Amazon Marketplace and other online merchants.

You can also get My Main Man as a download from Amazon and elsewhere.

From YouTube comes a track from the Stitt-Bunky Green collaboration. Thanks to Groove Addict for originally posting this.
