A Guitar And You - Music For An After Hours Mood

Harlem Noctourne
A Guitar And You
Music For An After Hours Mood
Session Under The Direction Of D. L. Miller

Somerset Records P-3500
Packaged by Trump Phono Record Sales, Inc.

Finely crafted small combo jazz set featuring Joe Sgro playing electric guitar (no acoustic on this LP). Additional credits go to Vince Montana - vibes, Joseph Kuhn - bass and Jack Cassidy - drums. D. L. Miller (Somerset was Miller's label) gives himself credit for "session direction".

There isn't much to be found on Sgro online other than he was well thought of as an instructor. This may have been his only project? However, if you google him you will find a short YouTube interview (an outtake from documentary titled Philly Pop Music).
