    The guy that got me into jazz and jazz guitar was taking lessons from Jimmy Wyble. I was so young and inexperienced that I didn't really learn anything from him in the 2 years or so we were roommates.

    Jimmy Wyble was, IMO, the best guitar player that Bob Wills ever had. Eldon Shamblin was a great rhythm player, but not a great soloist or improvisor. Wyble could play great rhythm, and was a great improvisor. Both were better than Junior Barnard, who gets a lot of praise.

    Frank Sinatra did an album with a small jazz band that featured Red Norvo and Jimmy Wyble. Not sure if this photo is from that session.
