Yazoo 1052; Ordering Information

A master musician, Roy Smeck is notable for his magnificent technical skill and artistry as well as his historical importance within the field of guitar playing itself. Everything he did was innovative in his field, for professional guitar playing scarcely existed when he started his career. His performances draw on rags, pop, blues, ethnic music and jazz, and are simply astounding.
