Jazz Guitar of the Day: Grant Green, Barney Kessel, Kenny Burrell, George Benson Ok and Moi


After a long day of well basically a lot of legalese working on a case I needed something to relax. I don’t know how I got here but I certainly enjoyed this video of three such great jazz guitarists, playing a blues called BLUE MIST.I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as I did.

And for those out there wanting it a bit more modern, I might as well include George Benson playing here with McCoy Tyner. Stella by Starlight is most definitely one of my favorites.

Most of all I have sweet memories of playing this song with my good friend for life and one of Europe’s finest bass players, Henk de Ligt.
