In the Groove

Celebrating Guitarist Jimmy Raney

 

Here are some videos of Jimmy Raney [pictured] to celebrate the 85th anniversary of his birth which was this Monday.  When he passed away in 1995, the New York Times obituary referred to Raney as ‘one of the most gifted and influential postwar jazz guitarists in the world.’

We listen to some of his music on In The Groove this week.
