Guitarist and composer Joe Diorio was born in Waterbury, CT, August 6, 1936. One person found this helpful.

Guitarist and composer Joe Diorio was born in Waterbury, CT, August 6, 1936. Joe has 50 years experience playing the guitar and over 40 years experience as a performer and recording artist. He has worked with such jazz luminaries as Sonny Stitt, Eddie Harris, Ira Sullivan, Stan Getz, Horace Silver, and Freddie Hubbard. He has recently toured Italy with Riccardo Del Fra (bass player with Chet Baker, Johnny Griffin, Toots Thieleman).

Nice book/cd with tab. The amount of work put into transcribing and organizing the lines shows. Wes Montgomery had stated in an interview about 1965 that he would publish a book. I don't believe he did. My only disappointment is that the lines themselves are not played. The cd only contains progressions to practice the lines over. Corey Christiansen's "Style of Wes Montgomery" is an introduction to Montgomery's technique. However, I do not believe guitar teachers will teach their students to play with their right (or left) thumb. For that reason, there is a high probability that there will never be another Wes Montgomery because of his unique style, technique and talent.

Grossman includes country blues styles from various regions and does a great job explaining the differences in techniques

Grossman includes country blues styles from various regions and does a great job explaining the differences in techniques. He also includes some of his own compositions. I would also recommend Beginning Fingerstyle Blues Guitar (Book and Audio CD) (Guitar Books) as a good introduction if you're completely new to the alternating bass.

The book is divided into solos and chord progressions - all of the material is aimed at the intermediate to advanced guitarist.

CD is great - ideas are great - but the transcription of the first solo "Sonny's Blues" is unforgivably bad; both the tab and the music notation are incorrect. I have not tried the rest of the solos yet, but I will update when I do.

The chord section is a mixed bag; most of the material is excellent - but for a few of the examples you need large hands otherwise some of the stretches are impossible.

The four jam tracks at the end of the CD are well produced and are good examples of the comping material in the book.

Apart from the problems, the book is unique - well worth the price.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the poor quality of the solo transcription - Mel Bay needs an errata page on their web site.

I'd been playing guitar for 20 years when I bought this book, and had studied a lot of jazz, studied jazz theory at college, but never really got my mind wrapped around it - never really got it under my fingers. This book was a HUGE help up in getting some jazz vocabulary under my fingers. I've had the book about 4 years and have gone back to it again and again and will continue to. The solos are all played on CD to which helps to get the nuances of the phrasing. I put the solos on my iPod and listened to them over and over again before trying to learn them.

I'm currently playing with a jazz combo and have been surprised at some of the stuff that comes out of me, and I know a good portion has to do with Joe Diorio's book. If you are an intermediate to advanced guitar player and are really looking to get more jazz chops into your vocabulary, I highly recommend this book. Particularly if you are in the blues / funk / fusion, this book will provide a lot of ideas for developing longer lines, stretching phrases over the bar lines, playing over changes, and expanding harmonic perception.

I also purchased Joe Diorio's book, Intervallic Designs for Jazz Guitar. I found that book helpful too for stretching my concept of the guitar. But of any jazz guitar book that I've bought, I'd say this one was the best buy for me.

I come out of the blues / rock / funk / reggae genres, so the bluesy / souly side of jazz is always what appeals to me the most.

for Joe or anyone this is a poor showing.

I picked up this and two other diorio bks in a recent spendfest. I wasn't familiar with him as a musician, and he comes off a little jimmy bruno-y, but good and thankfully not quite as technically overbearing as bruno. anyway, ironically, I'm a technically proficient jazzer wannabe with a brass fixation and vague charlie parker/mingus leanings. also a little denny dias mixed in. what a player that guy was. this book works that territory a bit, and I definitely feel that my swingy chromatic blues line playing has improved significantly, as has my my overall technique. these are pretty hard examples to play at joe's level execution-wise. I can do a few up to speed, and learning them slowly and methodically really opened up my understanding of pentatonics. but here's the rub: joe doesn't count off the music. often a track just launches into the line, which is probably buried in the mix, most are, and it frustrates rather than motivates. practice is practice, and joe, being the writer of several books and, who knows? maybe a few dvds, should know how to better present the material. as it is, I've gotten a good bit from it, but how much farther could I have gone with it if the execution was more thoughtful? this is good stuff for the dedicated, I'll put it that way
