Hank Gar­land

Jazz Winds From A New Di­rec­tion

Guitarist - - Feature -

Hank Gar­land is best known for his ses­sion work with Elvis Pres­ley at RCA in Nashville. That’s him hit­ting that proto

Back In Black lick on The King’s 1961 hit Lit­tle Sis­ter. Like most of the hot coun­try pick­ers of the 50s, Hank was ac­tu­ally a dyed-in-the-wool jazzer and his de­but al­bum finds him du­elling with smok­ing vi­bra­phon­ist Gary Bur­ton at break­neck speed. There are no dogs here but the stun­ning Riot-Chous is the pick of the lit­ter. It’s funkier than a month-old tuna sand­wich. Stand­out track: Riot-Chous Tech­nique take-home: Get your chord comp­ing up to warp speed
