Clark Terry’s album “The Globetrotter” is one of my favorites and features a lot of guys that I’m not that familiar with (I’m more of a 60′s person myself), but that Roland Prince is phenomenal! You might say, “Rolan what?” and you’d be excused from saying so because Roland seems to be somewhat of a mystery. He played with some prominent jazz musicians in the 70′s like Alvin Jones, Roy Haynes, and Clark Terry. During the late 80′s he mostly disappeared from the scene and supposedly moved back to his home in Antigua and has been there ever since – as far as I know. He also released a new album last year. Luckily this post isn’t about my 5 minutes of research and is instead about Roland’s guitar solo on Autumn Leaves.
Good news! There’s no video to go along with this. You’ll have to use your imagination or buy the album! I need to get some video editing software, but I don’t want to buy video editing software… so….

Realized around 11pm last night that I hadn’t made a post for today! And that means you get some emergency Joe Pass! This is his rhythm part played under the melody which leads into Joe’s solo (found here). I never really planned on releasing this, but good ole fashioned forgetfulness has forced my hand!

This week is another fantastic cut from Barney’s album “Kessel Plays Standards.”

Another Joe Pass fantastic. It’s a quickie 12 bar (mostly) chord solo that makes Joe welcome around these parts.

Wes continues to be the most popular guitarist on the site. Every once in a while Jim Hall or Kenny Burrell take the top spot for a week and then Wes just takes it back.

*edit 5-26-13* Woah! Just realized that this is a different version of the song I transcribed. I must have went off of an outtake… Nope, just checked. This video is the outtake. Welp folks, now’s a good time to think about getting this great album. I promise to actually watch/listen to the videos from now on.
It’s been almost a month since I posted a Jim Hall solo! Jim has quickly risen through the ranks to be one of my favorite guitarists. There’ll be much more of him in the future.
Welcome to the site, Vimeo. YouTube just didn’t have the video and for once you do! You’re a shining star.

This is the partner piece for John Pizzarelli’s solo posted one week ago (found here).
It’s another quiet week with no video to accompany the post… *Cough* Anyone bring their iPod?
