Velvet Guitar - The Guitar Artistry Of Hank Garland

Velvet Guitar
The Guitar Artistry Of Hank Garland
Harmony Columbia HL 7231
1960

Tracks off this album are available as purchase/downloads so I will not be posting a sample. I've posted the original cover(s) above which are not available with the downloads.

The cover art might lead you to believe that you are getting into some easy listening guitar. That's not the case. This is a smooth jazz LP. Apparently this is a hard to find album.

Garland's wiki page is an interesting read. His career was tragically cut short by a car accident that happened when he was playing for the soundtrack of an Elvis Presley movie.
