Barney Kessel - A Guitar Legend. New book by Maurice Summerfield.

For jazz guitar fans... Newcastle resident Maurice J. Summerfield has written and published what may well be the definitive biography of his long-time friend the late, legendary guitarist, Barney Kessel. "Barney Kessel - A Jazz Legend'', with a foreword by Howard Alden, is published by Maurice's company, Ashley Mark Publishing.
His earlier tome -'' The Jazz Guitar. Its Evolution and its Players,'' has, since its publication in 1978, become the reference book for jazz guitar historians. It is also published by Ashley Mark.
Ashley Mark Publishing, incidentally, are based in Blaydon - that popular pickers' paradise.
