Lou Mecca, Bill de Arango, Chuck Wayne (g), with Jack Hitchcock (vib), Vinnie Burke (b), Jimmy Campbell (d) / Johnny Williams (p), Teddy Kotick (b), Art Mardigan (d) / Brew Moore, Zoot Sims (ts), Harvey Leonard (p), George Duvivier (b), Ed Shaughnessy (d)

Originally issued on three 10-inch LPs, these albums feature three outstanding but underrated jazz guitarists: Lou Mecca, Bill de Arango and Chuck Wayne.

Crisp, inventive and fleet-fingered, Mecca found his own voice from his main inspiration, Tal Farlow, whom he replaced in the Gil MellГ© Quartet. Lous classical guitar sound is complemented in this 1954 Blue Note recording by fine vibist Jack Hitchcock, bassist Vinnie Burke and drummer Jimmy Campbell.

De Arango, among the first of the modern jazz guitarists in 52nd Streets heyday, hadnt recorded for a while when he made his album for EmArcy in 1954. His full sound, great swing and consistently imaginative power were in the Charlie Christian tradition, but, as this date proves, he was also very individual. Here, he is backed excellently by pianist Johnny Williams, bassist Teddy Kotick and drummer Art Mardigan.

Masterful as a soloist and rhythm player, Chuck Wayne conclusively proved his worth as a standout member of Woody Hermans First Herd, and in his contribution to the success of George Shearings Quintet. On this excellent 1953 Progressive album with Brew Moore and Zoot Sims he shines with both, achieving a relaxed unity with each. For all who dig guitar, this is a well seasoned group of performances by three articulate and compelling guitarists.
