AllMusic Review by

Titled The Best of the Jazz Guitars, this CD does feature five excellent guitarists: George Benson, Jimmy Ponder, Kenny Burrell, Charlie Byrd, and Grant Green. However, the packaging is poor (only partial personnel is given and no recording dates) and, although the music is decent (with two songs apiece for each of the groups except just one cut for Burrell), it is hardly definitive of any of these players. Both the music and the guitarists deserve better than this somewhat random set!
