This two-LP set features 13 different guitarists heard in selections taken from their Concord albums. Herb Ellis appears three times and Joe Pass twice (including their joint exploration of "Seven Come Eleven"); the other fine bop and swing-oriented players include Laurindo Almeida, George Barnes, Kenny Burrell, Charlie Byrd, Cal Collins, Eddie Duran, Tal Farlow, Freddie Green, Barney Kessel, Remo Palmier and Howard Roberts. Overall this is a nice sampler but it would be preferable to acquire the complete sessions instead.
