The Guitars Inc. was a clever idea to put together some of the best studio guitarists and see what they can do with well arranged pieces. For the 1958 sessions, Tommy Tedesco, Al Hendrickson, Howard Roberts, Bobby Gibbons and Bill Pitman got together with a collection of rhythm teams that included Mel Lewis-Larry Bunker-Alvin Stoller/dr and Joe Mondragon-Buddy Clark/b. The clever and nifty arrangements by artists including Mary Paich, Bill Holman and Lennie Niehaus keep the songs in concise forms of 2-3 minutes, but a lot goes on with some wondrous swingers such as “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Get Happy” and a danceable “El Cumbanchero” while the strings float like flakes on “Snowfall” and resign in reflection on “Darn That Dream.” This is a one of a kind team that needs to be brought back to the table!
