Trading Licks: Charlie Christian & T-Bone Walker

Trading Licks: Charlie Christian & T-Bone Walker

by Joseph Weidlich

Book/CD pack. Explores the musical commonality of the founders of electric jazz guitar and electric blues guitar respectively. While both were heavily influenced by the Kansas Territory blues bands, T-Bone Walker ended up working in the looser rhythm-and-blues genre that was developing in Los Angeles, while Charlie Christian began working in the number one dance band in the nation, the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Also explores how commonly used jazz licks were "reinterpreted" in an R&B context that are still just as exciting to listen to and play today as they were in the 1940s. CD includes 83 tracks. Note/tab. 112 pp.
