5:50 Christian Values

Charlie Christian (July 29, 1916 – March 2, 1942) with Lionel Hampton's Orchestra ~ Haven't Named It Yet

Charlie Christian's  supreme accomplishments include bridging the gaps between country, blues, swing and modern jazz, with an extensive knowledge of diminished and augmented scales, creating new ideas even after 20 consecutive choruses, and a supernatural ability to accent in a syncopated flow to heighten the excitement of dance music. He is credited with creating the word be-bop and playing in a relaxed style (learned from Lester Young) that foreshadowed cool jazz. Although credited for very few, Christian composed many of the original tunes recorded by the Benny Goodman Sextet. His words have never been quoted, and there is no performance footage of him. He never led a band. He died at age 25. Not only guitarists, but every major jazz musician has found inspiration in his work.
