Editorial Reviews

Hank ranks among the best sessions men in Nashville. Playing on countless country and rock albums (that's his killer riff on Elvis' "Little Sister"), he caught the attention of the president of Gibson Guitars who asked for his assistance with designing the hollow-body electric guitar known as the Byrdland. As jazz was another passion of Hank's, he wasted no time putting the new Byrdland through its paces. Here is a collection of many of Hank's best recordings.

Format: Audio CD
....like someone who successfully crosses over to another genre after he has been thoroughly pigeonholed by experts in a previous one. Such was Hank Garland, Nashville's busiest country guitar picker who, with little warning, made a superb jazz album in mid-career and seemed headed for jazz stardom until an auto accident left him unable to perform. As a jazz performer, Garland had a fertile melodic and harmonic imagination and a sound that had apparently honed to the gospel of tone and attack according to Charlie Christian - with some Les Paul mixed in and more than a touch of Bud Powell's influence as well. But even on his country records (check out Red Foley's sublime "Midnight" and "Hearts of Stone"), Garland's urbane jazz and blues sensibilities can be felt.

Cowpens is a rural suburb of Spartanburg, SC, and while growing up there, Garland absorbed country music from Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith and Mother Maybelle Carter on the radio, eventually switching from banjo to guitar. He joined the Grand Ole Opry at 15 in 1945, signed with Decca in 1949 as a solo artist, and appeared on innumerable Nashville recording sessions while jamming privately in local clubs. In July 1960, Garland came forward as a jazz musician, organizing a combo that was scheduled to play the Newport Jazz Festival but found itself on the sidelines after riots closed the festival.

The following year, Garland's jazz debut on record, Jazz Winds From a New Direction, astonished both jazz and country circles, and a follow-up album, The Unforgettable Guitar of Hank Garland, was issued. But in September 1961, a near fatal auto accident robbed Garland of a good deal of his coordination and memory.He eventually returned to playing, but never regained the renown of his early 60s heyday. Hank Garland passed away on December 27, 2004 at the age of 74.

I thought it would be worthwhile to tell Garland fans (count me in that group) that there are at least four albums involved in this set. "Unforgettable" and "Move" are two that are easy to follow (as far as track information is concerned). The following tracks are from two very obscure and totally out of print albums:

Jazz In New York (1979)

HG-1001-LPS

cherokee

secret love

like someone in love

it maight as well be spring

a foggy day in london town (213KB)

ed's place

blame it on my youth

Velvet Guitar - The Guitar Artistry of Hank Garland (1961)

Columbia HS 11028

secret love

scarlet ribbons

greensleeves

tammy

polka dots and moonbeams

autumn leaves (146KB)

like someone in love

ain't nothing wrong with that baby

ed's place

blame it on my youth

Note that not all of the tracks from these two albums are included on the CDs.

Garland was -not- a 'steel' guitarist, (as the editorial review states), but a great session guitarist. He played whatever was asked for on hundreds of hits, usually country or country-tinged pop and rock, but he was one of the greatest jazz guitarists that has ever lived. In spite of his amazing dexterity, he never let a riff take away from the music as a whole, and always had the most beautiful tone. The band, featuring the debut of then-teenaged Gary Burton on vibes, is perfect.

Garland made a good living playing country, but his jazz records where as far removed from country music as any could be. His playing is similar to Farlow's or Kessel's, but is very unique. If you like jazz guitar, or want to be a jazz guitarist, you have to have this CD. The playing is incredible.

Hank Garland was one of Nashville's best session guitarists of the 50s. He wrote the instrumental "Sugarfoot Rag" when he was only 16, and went on to play with many of country's notables. He became interested in jazz, which was not appreciated by the C&W community. He was seriously injured in a mysterious late-night auto accident - his car apparently had several bullet holes in it. He suffered brain damage, and had to relearn how to walk, talk, and play guitar. He never recovered his former health and skill, and died in December 2006. There are several articles about him on the Internet.

If you're a fan of the music and guitar playing of Johnny Smith, Barney Kessel and Howard Roberts then you're in for a treat. The aptly named 'The Guitar Artistry of Hank Garland' is a compilation of his entire recordings in one.

Don't umm and aahhh, MOVE! and buy this cd. You won't be disappointed.
