Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.
Charlie Christian was fooling around with electric pickups on his guitar as early as 1936, and his vision for the instrument in a swing and bop setting had a far-reaching effect far beyond the jazz world--any electric guitarists in any kind of a combo since owe a lot to this man, whether they know it or not. The tracks gathered for ON THE AIR are drawn from radio broadcasts Christian did as the guitar player for the Benny Goodman Sextet between 1939 and 1941, which means he got to stretch out a little, and his elegant skill and timing are everywhere evident on these tracks.
