Guitars in Perspective
John Munnerlyn and Lee Jeffriess team up for a swingin' set of original guitar instrumentals featuring standard guitar, steel guitar and fiddle. Inspired by country and jazz greats of the 40s & 50s, John and Lee's music is bound to appeal to anyone who likes hot guitars and cool tunes. John Munnerlyn has been playing American roots music for over 25 years. Last heard with The Haywoods, an authentic-style rockabilly outfit, John has expanded his guitar playing on this CD, incorporating elements of western swing, Travis picking and gypsy jazz. Called a modern master of the non-pedal steel guitar, Lee Jeffriess made his mark with Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys. Over the course of seven acclaimed CDs with that group, Lee's steel guitar work proved an exciting highlight of their jumpin' sound. Also featured on several tracks are fine fiddle players Brian Godchaux and Richard Chon, both known for their work with Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks. So if you like your guitars country-style with a side helping of swing, grab a copy of Guitars in Perspective and see what's cookin' with John and Lee.
