Charlie Christian - Genius Of Electric Guitar mp3 album

Charles Henry Christian (July 29, 1916 – March 2, 1942) was an American swing and jazz guitarist. Christian was an important early performer on the electric guitar and a key figure in the development of bebop and cool jazz. He gained national exposure as a member of the Benny Goodman Sextet and Orchestra from August 1939 to June 1941. His single-string technique, combined with amplification, helped bring the guitar out of the rhythm section and into the forefront as a solo instrument

Never has a title of an album or anthology been more on the money than the new Charlie Christian boxset entitled The Genius of Electric Guitar. The more profound aspect of this collection is that when you are listening you are amazed that only two years existed between his discovery in Oklahoma by John Hammond and his death due to tuberculosis at the age of twenty-five

With Christian the electric guitar became a distinct solo voice; equivalent to a saxophone, trumpet or clarinet and capable of the same levels of expressiveness and intensity. SELECTED DISCOGRAPHY. Charlie Christian-The Genius of the Electric Guitar: Columbia 40846. Best of Jazz: The Swing Era-Charlie Christian: Best of Jazz (French import) 4032.

Charlie Christian's role as a forefather of the electric guitar was forged not just because he was among the first to use the then-new technology in the late '30s, but also because of his playing. He understood that an electric guitar is a different creature than an acoustic, and he explored this difference with fearless aplomb during his tragically short life (he died in 1942 at the age of 25). This four-disc set is a powerful celebration of Christian's legacy. Charlie Cristian is owed a debt by every single person who has ever touched an electric guitar. you're playing has been touched by his shining light whether you know it or not. He did more in 2 years and forever changed the music.

Charlie Christian's tragic death at the age of 23 is a firmly entrenched fact of jazz mythology. On The Genius of the Electric Guitar, which consists of various tracks recorded with the Benny Goodman Sextet and Orchestra, Christian's revolutionary guitar playing is clearly displayed. In keeping with the era, each of these 16 songs is relatively short, with each soloist allowed only a chorus or two to make their statements. Paucity of time troubles Christian and his compatriots not a whit, however, and they let loose with concise, swinging lines.
