    I'm brand new to the forum and still in my infancy of learning about jazz guitar. Therefore, I'm not knowledgeable enough to make a suggestion to the top 100 list.

    I do, however, have a question. I haven't yet seen any mention of a Les Paul recording to the list. Are there any worthy of the top 100? If not, then why?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Heh Guys, I'd like to throw a vote for Wes' Smoking at the Half Note. Something about that live vibe that was special. Now it may be out of print but Columbia had a double album of most of the really great Charlie Christian stuff. Also we've got to get Django on there somehow, right? Finally, a personal favorite Tiny grimes. He should be represented for just being the swinging-est cat ever.

    I'm new, too, but am interested in any remarks that may be made by these jazz peeps. I've never considered Les Paul to be a jazz man, per se. I've always thought of him as a 'pop' guitarist. He worked with Jim Atkins, Chet's big brother, with that trio and Jim was a good jazz player as well as a big band guitarist but Les?........ I don't think he was considered a jazz guitarist.

    We cannot have a 100 top jazz guitar albums without including Tal Farlow. Maybe include The Complete Verve Tal Farlow Sessions. Any other suggestions for the best Tal Farlow representation?
    Also we will need representative titles from Mundel Lowe, Herb Ellis, Johnny Smith, George Van Eps and Kenny Burrell.

    Hi, this is my first post. I had to chip in because I don't think anyone has mentioned one of my favourite jazz guitar albums of all time: For Django by the great Joe Pass. I had the privilege of seeing him live back in the 80s and it was the most impressive playing I've ever seen and heard. For Django is his best, most complete album IMHO.

    Most of the records I would have mentioned are here already, so I'll just give a shout for Oscar Moore - his work with the Nat King Cole Trio is fine. Also, Paul Desmond's Live album has some beautiful playing from Ed Bickert.

    I'm glad some of you remembered artists like Herb Ellis, Tal Farlow. Let's not forget the late Tommy Tedesco formerly of Fernwood Tonight, The Gong Show, and many of contributions as a studio session player and mentor to Toto's guitarist. Tedesco was so smooth, he was talking to another musician while playing and made it look so easy, especially when not even looking at his fingers like it was nothing.

    Dave Cliff and Friends - "When Lights are Low"
    Bill Frisell - "Unspeakable"
    Ernest Ranglin - "Below the Bassline"
    Derek Bailey and Henry Kaiser - "Wireforks"

    Not exhaustive by any stretch of the imagination and many I would have been inclined to add have already been mentioned (Joe Pass, Django, Kessel, Scofield... and on and on; oh, and hats off to whoever brought the remarkable genius Frank Zappa into the mix.)
    If I was asked next week, my favourites would have changed (twice, probably.)

    It's so subjective but I think it's a great idea for a thread and it's interesting to see folks' opinions as much as the final top 100. Not only that but it'll certainly bring more jazz into my field of vision and get me buying again (even though I've got no money since I spent it on a custom shop 335... I guess I'll have to buy less beer and food for a bit .)

    As far as I'm concerned Jazz shouldn't be filed in the 'up it's own ringpiece' category on the shelf; John Zorn's "Jazz Snob Eat Shlt" always springs to mind if anyone gets anal about their favourite Jazzer. Your opinion is as valid as anyone elses and if you think Les Paul deserves a place in the list then get stuck in.

    Django Reinhardt: Nuages (one of the most beautiful ballads I ever heard)
    Charlie Byrd: Jazz Samba w/Stan Getz.
    Howard Roberts: Is a dirty guitar player.
    Kenny Burrell: All Blues (absolutely FANTASTIC).
    Wes Montgomery: (anything by him as I consider him to be the Godfather of the new players such as George Benson,Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour to name a few).
    Gabor Szabo:I love his recording of Breezin' he recorded it before George Benson.
    George Barnes: His early work sounded a lot like Les Paul. I also like his work with Bucky Pizzerelli.
    Johnny Smith:The Best Chord Melody Player Ever.

    I will introduce a new guitarist to the mix the one of the father's of Jamaican SKA music which has some roots in JAZZ. The guitarist name is Earnest Ranglin and the Album is The Ultimate Roots Ranglin. He also has one called Roots Ranglin. If you want to see samples of his playing go to youtube and search on Earnest Ranglin. He does a song with just him and a bass player called ranglin live glastonberry.
