Other than Django Reinhardt, the who's who of jazz guitar (all acoustic players) are heard on this sampler album from Yazoo. There are guitar duets by Lonnie Johnson and Eddie Lang, Lang and Carl Kress (the memorable "Feeling My Way"), Kress and Dick McDonough, and the team of John Cali and Tony Guttuso. In addition there are solo performances by McDonough and Nick Lucas. Although it would have been preferable to have this music with the complete sessions and in chronological order (the recording dates are unfortunately not included on the LP), this album has more than its share of classic performances and is worth a search.
