The Hot Box #068 – The Guitar Files – Part 4

In this series of glimpses into the world of jazz guitar, Hot Box 68 finds perhaps the most important guitarist of them all – Charlie Christian. He was born in 1916 and sadly died of tuberculosis when just 25 years old, but he’d already established the amplified guitar as a permanent part of the instrumental repertoire of jazz, and gone part of the way in leading jazz out of the Swing Era and into Bebop and modern jazz.

Other prominent players in the “C” file include Larry Coryell, Steve Cardenas and Philip Catherine.

An hour of guitar with a wide range of styles.
