Wikipedia : This day (May 6, 2004), in San Diego, California, died Barney Kessel, one of the greatest jazz guitarists of the 20th century.

@Facebook : In 1944 he participated in the film Jammin’ the Blues, which featured Lester Young, and in 1947 he recorded with Charlie Parker’s New Stars on the Relaxin’ at Camarillo session for Dial Records. He was rated the #1 guitarist in Esquire, Down Beat, and Playboy magazine polls between 1947 and 1960.

@last.fm : Kessel became a busy studio musician in Los Angeles but was always in demand for jazz records. He toured with the Oscar Peterson Trio for one year (1952-53) and then, starting in 1953, led an impressive series of records for Contemporary that lasted until 1961 (including several with Ray Brown and Shelly Manne in a trio accurately called “The Poll Winners”).
