Johnny Smith

Guitarist Johnny Smith will always be best remembered for his 1952 hit recording of "Moonlight in Vermont," a mellow ballad that also features Stan Getz. Smith, whose chordal-oriented style was self-taught, originally played trumpet, violin, and viola before switching to guitar. A studio musician from 1947 on, Smith's impressive technique and quiet sound made him in great demand even before "Moonlight" and, although he never had another hit, he was a popular attraction throughout the 1950s. After moving to Colorado in the 1960s he opened a music store, taught, and maintained a lower profile, occasionally recording in New York. Smith died in June 2013 at his home in Colorado Springs at 90 years of age. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

One of the classic jazz guitartist. Listend to him many nights at Shaner's in downtown Denver,, during the 1970s where he was sometimes accompanied by local drummer Lewis Gaiter
Beautiful and masterful playing here. Truly one of the un-sung greats. You that knew and lived close to him - I envy you that.
George Benson said he and Wes talked about Johnny all the time....'nuf f said.

I'm a young hip-hop lover but decided to delve into jazz music. I struck gold! Johnny is truly an amazing artist. I could listen to his stuff all day.

my dad played Johnny's albums all the time. My guitar teacher knew him and sounded just like him.He had the same guitar and would play for me and my dad when my lessons were over.My teacher 's name was John Cucci back in NJ. He was so good that when the Tonight show's regular guitar player was ill they would call him to fill-in. He had a music store too.
