The Charlie Christian Project celebrates the music of legendary guitarist Charlie Christian. Although he lived only 25 years (1916-1942) Charlie Christian left an enormous legacy both as the house guitarist at New York’s Minton’s Playhouse and a member of the historic Benny Goodman Sextet. Charlie Christian pushed the electric guitar into the spotlight even though the instrument was in its infancy.
Formed in 2011, the Charlie Christian Project features longtime Los Angeles session guitarist Michael Anthony, Grammy award-winning trumpeter Bobby Shew, bassist Micky Patten and drummer Cal Haines.
