Joe Pass • The Complete Catch Me! Sessions



 Artist Biography by Scott Yanow
Joe Pass did the near-impossible. He was able to play up-tempo versions of bop tunes such as "Cherokee" and "How High the Moon" unaccompanied on the guitar. Unlike Stanley Jordan, Pass used conventional (but superb) technique, and his Virtuoso series on Pablo still sounds remarkable decades later.

Joe Pass had a false start in his career. He played in a few swing bands (including Tony Pastor's) before graduating from high school, and was with Charlie Barnet for a time in 1947. But after serving in the military, Pass became a drug addict, serving time in prison and essentially wasting a decade. He emerged in 1962 with a record cut at Synanon, made a bit of a stir with his For Django set, recorded several other albums for Pacific Jazz and World Pacific, and performed with Gerald Wilson, Les McCann, George Shearing, and Benny Goodman (1973).

However, in general Pass maintained a low profile in Los Angeles until he was signed by Norman Granz to his Pablo label. 1973's Virtuoso made him a star and he recorded very prolifically for Pablo, unaccompanied, with small groups, on duo albums with Ella Fitzgerald, and with such masters as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson, Milt Jackson, and Dizzy Gillespie. Pass remained very active up until his death from cancer.

Biografía del artista por Scott Yanow
Joe Pass hizo lo casi imposible. Fue capaz de tocar versiones up-tempo de temas de bop como "Cherokee" y "How High the Moon" sin estar acompañado por la guitarra. A diferencia de Stanley Jordan, Pass utilizó una técnica convencional (pero magnífica), y su serie Virtuoso sobre Pablo sigue sonando notable décadas después.

Joe Pass tuvo una salida falsa en su carrera. Tocó en algunas bandas de swing (incluyendo la de Tony Pastor) antes de graduarse de la escuela secundaria, y estuvo con Charlie Barnet por un tiempo en 1947. Pero después de servir en el ejército, Pass se convirtió en un drogadicto, cumpliendo condena en prisión y perdiendo esencialmente una década. Emergió en 1962 con un corte discográfico en Synanon, causó sensación con su set For Django, grabó varios otros álbumes para Pacific Jazz y World Pacific, y actuó con Gerald Wilson, Les McCann, George Shearing, y Benny Goodman (1973).

Sin embargo, en general, Pass mantuvo un perfil bajo en Los Ángeles hasta que fue fichado por Norman Granz para su sello Pablo. El Virtuoso de 1973 lo convirtió en una estrella y grabó muy prolíficamente para Pablo, solo, con pequeños grupos, en álbumes a dúo con Ella Fitzgerald, y con maestros como Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson, Milt Jackson, y Dizzy Gillespie. Pass permaneció muy activo hasta su muerte por cáncer.
