Nashville has always been filled with country musicians who moonlight playing jazz. Superb session guitarist Hank Garland, who played alongside country stars such as Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley, also waxed an album with jazz heavy Gary Burton. Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant, the phenomenal steel guitar/electric guitar tandem, incorporated heavy doses of bebop into their work. Emmons too was bitten early by the jazz bug, and this 16-song retrospective proves he had the chops to fit in. The first three cuts find the then-19-year-old Emmons backed by Little Jimmy Dickens's Country Boys. Of most significance, however, is the presence of 1963's Steel Guitar Jazz, which includes jazz contemporaries Booby Scott, Charlie Persip, and Jerome Richardson. Emmons glides through standards, old ballads, and even handles Sonny Rollins's "Oleo" and Horace Silver's "The Preacher." His atmospheric, mood-creating work on the slow numbers is as impressive as his rippling runs on the uptempo tunes. Emmons is the consummate "musicians' musician." --Marc Greilsamer

This is essentially a reissue of Buddy's classic "Steel Guitar Jazz". It was Buddy's first trip to the Big Apple, and his first encounter with legitimate jazz musicians. The prhasing and style are distinctive Emmons, and there's even an original blues written in the studio: "Bluemmons".
While it lacks the clarity of vision and arrangment of his later "Emmons Guitar Company" album, "Steel Guitar Jazz" turned the steel world on its ear when it was released. This is a classic that deserves a spot in the collection of every steel guitarist and steel guitar fan. I've been listening to it for years and I've never tired of it.

The recording date of 1963 puts Emmons at 26, not 19. Regardless, this album
is the first of its kind. A moment in time. Excellent band and repertoire.
Buddy Emmons is the Thomas Edison and Charlie Parker of the pedal steel guitar, an inventor on so many levels.

This is vintage Emmons. He showed his genius at an early age. My disappointment was that I thought I was going to here some recent renditions, since the the release date for the CD was 1997. Unfortunately, all the recordings were cut in 1963 and before according to the jacket.
