AllMusic Review by

The 2014 compilation When Jazz Meets Guitar showcases stellar swing, bop, and contemporary jazz recordings by some of the world's finest guitar players. Often regarded as simply the instrument of sidemen, the guitar has become a focal point for jazz music. Here we get a sampling of cuts by a few of the guitarists who've helped shape our love of the six-stringed instrument. Included are cuts by Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, Les Paul, Kenny Burrell, Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny, and others.
