I really like Barney. I think it's because I hear some blues in there, along with his mentor Charlie Christian. He's not afraid to bend a string. And his Poll Winners albums with Shelly Manne and Ray Brown are at the top of my list. I loved them as a teenager, and I love them now.

Yup, had The poll winners on vinyl, cassette and CD.

Favorite? I find myself frequently listening to a lot of Wes and earlier Barney Kessel, his 50s stuff. I like Barney's later music as well but his 50s stuff floats my boat.

Beside that.... I marvel at Joe Pass and enjoy Kenny Burrell but those first two are my faves.

John McLaughlin. Not for the stuff he did with Miles or the 70s Mahavishnu stuff, but the beautiful ringing jazz chords he played in the 60s w Duffy Power
