No one has ever taken the art of playing the guitar to a higher level than Johnny Smith. My great regret is that I never had a chance to see him perform. However I believe I have heard just about everything he recorded. Just wonderful music. I recently read in a Jim Hall article that in the 50s He and Tal Farlow use to try and play some of Johnny's lines and laugh when they could not do it. Think about that!
