Joe Pass - Virtuoso download flac
Virtuoso is an album by jazz guitarist Joe Pass that was released in 1973. Despite having only one original composition ("Blues for Alican"), it is widely considered to be his best album, as well as one of the best jazz guitar albums. The remastered version used 20-bit K2 Super Coding System technology and included liner notes by Benny Green.
When Joe Pass recorded and released this first of his Virtuoso series of albums, he was 44 years old, and ready to reclaim his crown as king of jazz guitar after years of heroin abuse. As a solo artist playing only acoustic guitar in an amplified fusion era, the odds were stacked against him, but Pass boldly issued this, his most creative and improvisation-based work, to mass critical acclaim and widespread general public sales.
Joe Pass: Virtuoso by C. Michael Bailey, published on February 9, 2005 at All About Jazz. Pass emerged to record his first album in 1962, the well-received The Sounds of Synanon (Pacific Records 48, 1962). Over the next eight years, Pass recorded several fine recordings for World Pacific, Blue Note, Pacific Jazz, Discovery, and BGO. Then in 1973, it was Norman Granz, the producer/impresario (Clef, Norgram, Verve, Pablo), who heard Pass in 1970, immediately signing him to the Pablo imprint.
