|The "Be-Bop" Guitars is an all-faculty band from Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.|
| Berklee is known worldwide as the epicenter of
contemporary guitar education. This CD features 5 of Berklee's time honored
guitar faculty performing specialized arrangements that show the diversity
of the instrument and of the performers. The remainder of the band includes
other respected members of the Berklee faculty.
The group began by performing arrangements from "Supersax" and other similar ensembles. Later, adding to the "book" by writing new arrangements and compositions. Over the years, the ensemble has garnered a steady following of fans that enjoy guitar-oriented jazz. This first CD includes new arrangements of music from some of the greats of the jazz world, as well as a few compositions of our own. We hope you enjoy our premiere effort.
I would like to thank the musicians who performed
with me on this CD. They are not only great musicians, but are also good
friends and it is always a pleasure to work with them.
Thanks for listening.
