Warm up for the Harvest

The 2009 Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in Fredericton has kicked into gear with another fabulous lineup of performers. Great guitarists are never in short supply at the festival, and this year will be no exception, with performances by Susan Tedeschi, Elvin Bishop, and East Coast fave Matt Anderson, just to name a few.

UNB Libraries has selected a few great jazz and blues guitar tracks from the Naxos Music Library to help you warm up for this year’s Harvest:

I Can’t Be Satisfied (Big Bill Broonzy)

Djangology (Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli)

Honeysuckle Rose (Bucky and John Pizzarelli)

Guitar Blues (Lonnie Johnson and Eddie Lang)

Blue Skies (Les Paul)

The Naxos Music Library and Smithsonian Global Sound are available to members of the UNB/STU community through UNB Libraries.
