Anything by Curly Chalker is choice. The "Big Hits on Big Steel" record made me an instant fan of his playing style.

If you want some really cool jazz steel, I can recommend "Doug and Bucky", featuring Doug Jernigan and Bucky Pizzarelli. Copies of the album can always be found on Ebay for under $20.

Here's two sample cuts from the album...

And... here's a really cool cut from Jim Loessberg

Dan Jones and The Standard Deviations band has some great jazz and pop tunes on YouTube... very well worth a look.

I still have my Hillbilly Jazz double album on Flying Fish record label. Jernigan on Cherokee. Some great Vassar fiddle. I don't think they ever released a CD version.

Don't think you can go wrong with either or both of these:

https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/lespaulbuddyemmonshoward

https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/jbryantbemmons

Note the personnel on the first one: Les Paul, Buddy Emmons, Howard Roberts, Tal Farlow, Curly Chalker, Herb Ellis, Doug Jernigan, Slam Stewart, Julian Tharpe, Bucky Pizzarelli, Reece Anderson & Louie Bellson.

Undeservedly obscure killer albums. Smile

These are not CD's, but these clips from Tony Locke and Mikiya Matsuda are incredible! I hope that those guys do not mind me posting these clips (they are both forum members, I believe). This is great stuff!

And we should include the great Juaquin Murphey who was ahead of his time. I have a solo album that Scotty or Tom Bradshaw put out many years ago, and I always find it inspiring. I think there is another solo album where he's playing on a Bigsby (if I remember correctly) that was built by forum member Chas Smith. I apologize for my limited knowledge of this, but Juaquin Murphey was a great jazz steel guitarist.

Mike Anderson:

I'm intrigued by the photo you posted showing Buddy E and Les Paul. Who's that holding the unusual red Gibson on Buddy's left?

It looks just like Ray Price's guitar - a custom L-5 in red with a round sound-hole. A rare bird indeed - could it have been Ray's guitar in that picture?

That's Howard Roberts with the Howard Roberts model Gibson ES-150 with oval soundhole.

Thanks, Jim. Price's guitar was probably a one-off, then.

Right, Ken. Ray Price' Gibson, though, was an L-5 with a custom top and predated the Howard Roberts model.

Similar at a glance, though.

Looks like a "flower pot" inlay on the guitar in question. Would certainly fit in the L-5 line!

Agreed. Fern inlay in your picture. Maybe Howard's guitar was exclusive to him as the signature artist.
