Watch the Level 2: Jazz Blues Soloing online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Take 5: Jazz Blues Soloing
Like T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian was a huge influence on both his contemporaries and subsequent generations of guitarists. Two of his most immediate and successful influence-ees, if that's a word, were Oscar Moore and Mary Osborne. Moore played in the very popular and influential Nat Cole Trio, while Osborne worked with many of the great jazz musicians throughout her career. Both made solo records which are worth seeking out along with Moore's Nat Cole recordings.
