Song of the Day: Joe Pass, “Jazz Master”

Jazz guitar virtuoso Joe Pass was born on this day in 1929. He played with Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, and others as well as a bandleader and soloist from 1962 to his death in 1994. In "Jazz Master," recorded sometime in the early ’60’s, he shows that jazz can be played on a solid-body guitar, in this case a Fender Jaguar.

    1. I saw the Beato tribute to Joe Pass. He does some really great videos. He did one recently about Chicago’s “Make Me Smile” that gave me a whole new appreciation for it.
