IPTC INFO
CaptionCharlie Christian was dead of TB at 25 but his impact on modern jazz in general and electric guitarists in particular is incalculable. Christian's horn-like phrasing style and genius for setting up repeated rhythmic figures known as riffs anticipated the bebop revolution to come and was a major influence on Thelonious Monk and Wes Montgomery. As a member of the Benny Goodman sextet Christian brought a sense of blues and swing while setting the stage for rock and bebop musicians.
HeadlineThough short-lived Charlie Christian had a vast impact on electric guitarists and jazz in general.
KeywordsCharlie Christian Benny Goodman BeBop Blues
