This CD presents an outstanding selection covering the whole career of Charlie Christian, the true inventor of electric jazz guitar. He is heard in studio sessions with the Benny Goodman Sextet, soloing backed by the whole Goodman orchestra and in an amazing rehearsal with Cootie Williams. As a bonus, are included three extended tracks taken from the legendary jam sessions at New Yorks Minton's Playhouse in May 1941.

All time classic tracks by the musician who inspired all the jazz guitarists to come.
