Lang, Eddie / Kress, Carl / McDonough, Dick - Pioneers Of Jazz Guitar 1927-1939

The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD says: "Contains all of Lang's solo and guitar/ piano pieces, the two duets with Carl Kress and a further ten tracks featuring Kress either by himself or with Dick McDonough. For those who want to hear the guitar away from any band situations this is excellent... Kress and McDonough are a shade more modernistic, but they had the benefit of long going before then." We can only add that Lang was the first great Jazz guitarist. Transfers by John R.T. Davies and liner notes by Scott Yanow - Top Quality
