No longer just a sideman, this great jazz guitarist went all the way when he emerged as a leader on this 1957 album, wrapping his licks in rich orchestral arrangements. The original album is here-plus five unissued alternate takes!

2. Embraceable You
3. Love For Sale
4. Along With Me
5. Carmel
6. Body And Soul
7. Snuggled On Your Shoulder
8. How About You
9. Lover Man
10. What A Difference A Day Made
11. Rockabye Baby
12. Lullaby In Rhythm (Previously Unreleased Alternate Take)
13. Love For Sale (Previously Unreleased Alternate Take)
14. Carmel (Previously Unreleased Alternate Take)

A fansastic album by a guitarist who could do it all. His mastery of the styles he chose to study was unsurpassed. Listen to his beautiful orchestrations of these tunes. And while his solos are impecable, don't forget to pay close attention when he isn't playing a solo. His backup of the other musicians is superb.
My favorite.

To anyone who gives this less than five stars I dare you to play it better.
This is a masterpiece of playing equal to joe pass or kenny burrell.

I still have the original LP on vinyl. When I was in 7th and 8th grade I would play this record on a portable Phono while doing my homework. Too bad the needle went bad and ruined my favorite track "Body and Soul" He had a great chordal line near the end of this that only he could do justice. Listen to this album caused me to study Jazz Solo Guitar, otherwise known as Chord Melody Style, which I still play and practice 'till this day. Much can be learn in the treatment of a melody line by listening to his approach. He would play many times with another Jazz great Mundell Lowe ( who I had the pleasure of hearing perform in person) at a bar just 15 ft away from me. Wish I could have caught Chuck live. Both of these guys were great players and real gentlemen. If any of these great players ever perform locally live you should make it a point to hear them. It will be an event you will never forget sine each time they play it is an unique presentation - never the same twice. Unlike Rock Stars they play "in the moment" which is created by the audience around them.

He plays fine and the band does as well. However a bit to "nice" and thus a bit boring. Especially when comparing the alternatives from the period, the style, the set-up and the instrumental colleauges available.

The 4- 5 star reviews are definitely out of range.
