The Guitars Inc • "Invitation" & "Soft and Subtle" / Guitar players: Tommy Tedesco, Al Hendrickson, Howard Roberts, Bobby Gibbons & Bill Pitman



These two 1958 albums, “Invitation” and “Soft and Subtle,” brought together five of Hollywood’s finest guitarists—namely Tommy Tedesco, Al Hendrickson, Howard Roberts, Bobby Gibbons, and Bill Pitman—under the direction of Jack Marshall, and with the corporate name The Guitars, Inc. Five talented musicians, each an outstanding soloist in his own right, but all challenged and pleased with the possi- bilities of the group guitar sound. All five were in constant demand for recordings, radio, television and motion pictures, but they joined forces to combine this unique instrumentation with great musicianship and inventiveness, playing a careful selec- tion of material: the familiar and the obscure, the dreamy and the up-tempo, the swinging and the delicate. You are invited on a voyage of discovery to a new musi- cal realm where taste, subtlety, imagination and charm conspire to bring back the joy of listening to fine music.
