That Latin Touch - Enrique Coria
Performing solos and duets and trios by Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, Waldir Azevedo, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Eduardo Falú.

The Man With the Mandolin - Dave Apollon (ACD27): Dave Apollon (AH-poe-lawn) was born to Jewish parents in Kiev in February 1897. Described in Grisman's notes as a prodigy, he learned to play the mandolin on an instrument his father gave him as a boy. Grisman has produced this two-disc collection of the complete recordings of the mandolin wizard whose career included vaudeville, Las Vegas and Hollywood. That Apollon's music had an enormous influence on Grisman's own career is indisputable, and as the producer, Grisman has taken great care to insure that the energy and virtuosity of the music remain intact.
(2-CD set $19.95 includes 22 page booklet).
Bye Bye Blues—"Jethro" Burns
Twenty two tracks of classic swing and jazz standards that Jethro recorded with guitarist Don Stiernberg over the last two years of his life.


Swing Low, Sweet Mandolin - "Jethro" Burns
A series of instrumental duets with Don Stiernberg supplying the rhythm guitar foundation for Burns’ soaring mandolin leads. The material consists of a number of standards, such as “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Corrina, Corrina,” “Smiles,” and “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.” Sure, we’ve heard these tunes a thousand times before, but they still bring a smile with Burns’ delivery.
Blues for a Gypsy
Guitar genius Frank Vignola manages to combin Django Reinhardt's gypsy flare with the music of Charlie Parker, Delta blues, and solo violin of J.S. Bach.
Going Up On the Mountain - Jody Stecher
Jody Stecher made a considerable reputation for himself in the mid-70s when he recorded two albums for the small Bay label. They have now been re-released with new notes and photos.
The Kitchen Tapes - Red Allen & Frank Wakefield
Recorder in April 1963, in a kitchen in Hyattsville, Maryland, by David Grisman, in a kitchen with help from fellow student and future record producer Peter Siegel. Surrounded by wives, kids and thawing steaks, they recorded 30 bluegrass songs by mandolinist Frank Wakefield and guitarist/singer Red Allen.

Swing Guitar Masterpieces 1938-1957 - Oscar Alemán
Here is a richly rewarding collection of brilliant, inventive and oh-so-tasteful guitar pieces - over two and a half hours of the guitarist running the strings on jazz and swing classics like "Lady Be Good," "Limehouse Blues," "Stardust, and "Tea For Two." Alemán, a contemporary of Django Reinhardt, plays in the same "Hot Club of Paris" mode as Django, and his work is delightfully similar but with a bolder, gutsier approach. Incredible guitar playing. Great listening. (2-CD set $19.95 includes 20 page booklet).
