I consider this book a  MUST for the true jazz oriented guitarists. It features the  world of jazz guitar at its best with highly detailed informations on each guitarist, as well as very rare pictures (as you can see from the cover itself).

Above and below are shown two of the most influential books of the XX century among musicians of any class or genre.

"Vincent Persichetti's 20th Century Harmony is a very important book. I also highly recommend Nicholas Slonimsky's Thesaurus Of Scales And Melodic Patterns. Those two will take you a long way."
