The Great Guitars

The Great Guitars™ traces its colorful heritage back to the 1970's when the legendary jazz guitarists of that era toured the world and recorded together. Award-winning guitarist Martin Taylor, who replaced Herb Ellis to become part of the original group in the 1980's with the legendary Barney Kessel and Charlie Byrd, has revised the format for the 21st century-enlisting two of today's top jazz guitars players to co-create a brilliant program displaying guitar mastery, emotion, humor and musical fireworks.

Combining Taylor's award-winning virtuosic finger style with Vignola's jaw-dropping technique, and Jorgenson's incredible musical versatility, the concert features solo, duet, and trio performances by these three acknowledged masters of fingerstyle, jazz and gypsy guitar. Between them, these three guitar greats have worked with artists ranging from Tommy Emmanuel to David Grisman, Donald Fagen to Wynton Marsalis, and Bonnie Raitt to Bob Dylan.
