Countless musicians have been inspired upon hearing Charlie Christian for the first time. In this exciting book, the author has compiled 39 precise solo transcriptions (in notation only), as well as a thorough analysis of each. There is also a complete "how to" section that is a book in itself. The author has recorded each transcription in slow and fast versions on two CDs. The book contains some of Charlie's best work including the Jam Sessions at Minton's, John Hammond's Spirituals to Swing concert and the Celestial Express Blue Note Recordings. Charlie Christian was the first to popularize the use of the electric guitar in jazz. He was the pioneer who led the way.

  • March 12, 2007 Good transcriptions of much live material

    This set includes a lot of more obscure live solos, plus multiple takes of many studio pieces as well. Ayeroff provides EXHAUSTIVE analyis of each solo, and I only wish he would have provided a legend for the abbreviations used. Good recordings too. Just remember--this is how Wes Montgomery...

    got his chops! Highly Recommended.
