Bob Brozman is a slide guitar wizard, musicologist, and world ambassador for a variety of musics linked by old guitars and related instruments. And he has also spread the gospel of some of the instruments themselves. This was his first official solo album, from 1981, when his interests were more tightly focused than they've since become. He begins his notes for the album this way:

"The music on this record is intended as a tribute to the manifold outpourings of the recording artists of the 1920s. I tend to overlap styles in a way that wasn't common back then, in order to get new music that still remains true to the old sounds. I use National resonator instruments because I have been fascinated and totally absorbed by their sound and response for over a decade; they are simply the most exciting acoustic instruments I've ever played."

As you might guess from the album title (and my review title), the recording artists of the '20s he refers to include chiefly blues, Hawaiian and jazz players. As he says, he mixes the styles, and for this album that means mostly mixing old Hawaiian style into blues and jazz from the '20s and '30s, or into originals written in those styles. There are also Hawaiian songs from that period and earlier, back as far as 1881.

The National resonator instruments he speaks of are, first, National brand steel-bodied guitars, one of which is pictured on the album's front cover (a couple years before Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms album featured a National on its cover) and a bunch of which are shown on the back, like the stars they are. The ones played here include both standard and Hawaiian models.

I'm more a blues than Hawaiian fan but I really enjoyed this. The playing and tone is so good, the genre doesn't matter
