Barry Galbraith, 1919 – 1983, remains one of the most admired jazz guitarists of all time. As a studio musician in the 1950’s and 1960’s he was in such high demand that he left us with one of the richest collections of jazz recordings on record, but at the same time one of the most limited, due to the fact that he most commonly appeared as sideman only. His recording Guitar and the Wind was apparently his only recording as leader. But, due to his excellent musicianship in almost any venue from Dixieland to the experimental there are dozens of examples of Barry Galbraith to listen to and learn from.
