About Joe Pass (Joseph Anthony Passalaqua ): He was born on January 13,1929 in New Brunswick, New Jersey and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. His dad, an Italian steel-worker bought him his first guitar at age 9 and urged him to learn tunes and improvise by ear after witnessing the child's early musical propensities.
After recording numerous albums for the Pacific Jazz and World Pacific labels throughout the 60's, Pass was signed by Norman Granz, the producer of Jazz at the Philharmonic and founder of Verve Records to his new Pablo Records label in 1970. In 1974, Pass released his now traditional solo album Virtuoso. This preliminary recording along with the whole collection that followed, has actually redefined the art of solo jazz guitar. As an outcome of these solo recordings and shows, Pass lastly attained the notoriety he should have and was consistently listed in allure surveys every year. Throughout this exact same period at Pablo, he recorded a set of commonly well-known guitar/vocal duet records with Ella Fitzgerald.
