What’s In the Box?


Jazz Compass (January 22, 2008) Here from Larry Koonse are fresh interpretations of the legendary guitarist Jimmy Wyble’s original solo guitar music. Jimmy’s creative gems are interpreted in solo, duo, trio, and quartet settings in a recording which features the talents of Dave Koonse, Darek Oleszkiewicz, Joe La Barbera, Putter Smith, and Gary Foster. Although Jimmy is known for his work with Benny Goodman and Red Norvo in the 50’s and 60’s, his music is just as relevant today and we invite you to visit a very magical place as you are transported by the genius of this modern day master.
