Swing Guitar Review

by Scott Yanow

This hard-to-find LP from the now-dormant Famous Door catalog features the great swing guitarist George Barnes in a pair of all-star quartets with either Dick Hyman or Hank Jones on piano, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Jo Jones. A few traditional themes are mixed in with the swing standards and Barnes is in top form throughout.
