Jazz Guitarists – Joe Pass

Musican Summary

Joe Pass 1974 Joe Pass is another of my favorite guitarists.

Early in his career he had a problem with drugs and spent over two years at at Synanon. He spent most of that time improving his guitar playing.

He was great at single-line soloing but he was also great comping or playing chord melodies. I particular like the many albums he did with Ella Fitzgerald – one of my all time favorite vocalists. He recorded six albums with Ella.

Joe Pass died of liver cancer in 1994.
