22 For All We Know/I Can& Get Started. ESMOND SELWYN - The Axe: Solo Jazz Guitar (Slam 265; UK). "I've heard your solo album "The Axe" and I find it edifying. John Montgomery Carson (Wes Montgomery's nephew). If you listened to this blind, you might think Pablo had uncovered yet another unreleased Joe Pass session, but no, this is by Welsh guitarist Esmond Selwyn. Selwyn’s playing has superficial resemblances to Pass in the thoughtful single note picking and the rippling flourishes at the ends of lines but the liner notes of this CD instead cite Tal Farlow.

British guitarist Esmond Selwyn has such astounding technique that you wonder why he's not better known stateside. The closest kin to Pass, perhaps, is longtime John Handy guitarist Jerry Hahn, who, with Solo, proves himself a worthy successor to the nd lineage. Like Selwyn, Hahn favors well known standards, adeptly handling the various chores usually delegated across an entire combo; like Akchoté, Hahn's arrangements are well constructed and eminently guitar friendly.
